These days, I tell everyone that Twitter is great for a lot of reasons, but especially for the writing community.
I love the impromptu nature of the conversations. Sometimes an off-the-cuff comment can snowball into a veritable Twitter party with folks popping in and out of conversations, dropping nuggets of wisdom and hilarity at will.
I often use the Favorite function to save the ones I wanted to read later, but I always wanted something a bit more searchable. After talking to my friend and writing partner, Amanda, we decided to create our own hashtag to collect some of these gems.
#Plottymouths has become a digital scrapbook of sorts, collecting random writing musings and publishing information.
But Twitter isn’t the place for one-sided conversation and we love hearing new points-of-view. That’s where this blog post comes in.
On the eve before St. Patrick’s Day, we’re hosting a #plottymouths event on writing love stories. Since we missed Valentine’s Day, and because we can’t resist a good pun, we’re calling it #GettingLucky.
So pour a pint of your favorite green beverage and join us on March 16th at 7:30PM EST (for about an hour or so) to talk about all aspects of creating a love story for the ages. Don’t worry if you don’t read or write romance; this chat is open to all literary genres.
See you there! Keep your eye on the #plottymouths tag for more info, or follow us on Twitter:
