I don’t want to be an alarmist, but Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, started following me on Twitter. (In case you aren’t familiar – find her, follow her. She’s hilarious…and ever-so-slightly damaged in an entirely relatable way.)
I am now convinced that between my 49 Twitter followers and 51 blog followers (yeah…I picked up 15 more by shamelessly asking people to follow me. Who knew that would work?), my massive sphere of influence is going to creep pervasively around the globe and seep into people’s consciousness like some nightmarish subliminal message.
I’m just going to convince people that the fast lane is for passing, that it was a travesty that it took so long for Rush to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and that acting like an asshole should be a misdemeanor. Or at least an infraction carrying a hefty fine.
Haha congrats! I too have been shamelessly seeking new friends 😛
At least we admit it 😉
But FOR the record, I have been “meeting” lots of great people so there’s that!
Now if we could just “meet” 10,000 more, we’ll be in good shape! (And have something worth including on our query letters.)
Hey, one follower at a time, right? Haha! I just finished my query letter, what a pain…..
I’ve already sent out about 90 query letters =/ I’ve got one request for a partial out. Who knew tenacity was going to be more important than talent? 😉
a sad truth……………..
Man, I sent the Bloggess a complimentary, not at all creepy email after reading her fab book–nothing. And I lack twitter due to a dinosaur phone (that I’m totally grateful to have, parents!). Yes, I’m on my parents’ plan as the ex took the new iPhone and iPad he bought before splitting our accounts, then splitting. I wish him peace. I’ve no idea what to do with my writing. Having a plan certainly seems like a good idea…thanks for the tip! Good luck–you’ll get published, no doubt.
Thanks! I appreciate the vote of confidence 🙂 The Bloggess follows like 27,000 people on Twitter…but I’m choosing not to focus on that little tidbit. We’ll do fine – we just have to stick with it after any sane person would have given up. I believe that is the secret to success 😉
You wish your ex peace? Benevolent of you. I wish my ex choked on a *piece* of bread…but I think that is something entirely different.
LOL. Yes, we have to be a bit mad to succeed in the writing business. That peace took 3+ years of weekly therapy and pharmaceuticals to obtain 😉 You’re right–we will do fine. Enjoy your weekend!
