Tweet Tweet

Okay, so I jumped on the bandwagon. I joined Twitter to see what all the fuss is about. But honestly, I'm still not sure. It's hard to figure out what people are responding to when they post things sometimes and I'm not totally sure if it's a good networking tool or yet another site to waste large chunks of time. I'll let you know when I figure it out. Hint: I've spent like an hour and a half of my writing time finding people I know and reading posts.
However, I did get in my word count goal today, which is more than I can say for the last couple of weeks. My folks just left after their yearly snowbird stay of 6 weeks. I didn't write as much as I should have during their visit, but I got in loads of daughter points;-)
In other news, Girl Scout cookie season is over - thank goodness! Between the parental visit (AKA food fest) and GS cookie hell, I gained like 5 pounds!! I'm off to the gym tomorrow morning for a double time workout, rather than my usual one.
So what's new in your world? Are you twittering yet?

I haven't succumbed to Twitter yet. I held off on MySpace for at least a year, longer than that for Facebook. I imagine I can resist all the tweeting for a while longer as well. Meanwhile, I'm trying to decide which book to write next. Word count goals? I wish!

Mostly it's just a big time suck. However, I have tried new authors because I "tweeted" with them. So I guess it's good for both?

Just can become very addicting.

Terry - I think we have to pick and choose which sites to put our time and energy into. The "IT SITE" of the time is the one I'll concentrate on.

Holly - I think you're right. I realized after I followed tons of folks that there are now tons of tweets I have to sort through. But dicovering new authors is great!

I broke down and did it too. Still don't get what all the hype is about :)
