Okay, so I haven't graduated to Twitter yet. I'm mulling it over, but clearly others are eons ahead of me. Therefore, I'm asking a favor. Some of you may recall my shameless plug a while ago about a contest I entered called "Why I write," on Editor Unleashed. I submitted an essay from Middle Passages that I edited and tweaked (That's "tweaked," not "tweeted," or should it be "twittered????") called "Scotch Anyone?" The contest is, in part, being scored by popular ranking, and now we are at the part where readers can vote. Aside from those Twitter folks who are leaving me in the dust, I'm having a respectable showing and I'd appreciate your support to close the gap a bit. You have to be a member of Editor Unleashed to vote, so if you are, may I ask you to? Vote for me, I mean?
In case you aren't a member, and don't know, Editor Unleashed is the site of a former Editor from WritersDigest.com named Maria Schneider. Her site offers volumes of information as well as forums for writer types. For years, prior to the cocoon-to-butterfly writer transformation that occurred last year, I read and learned a tremendous amount from Writers' Digest, so I'm a huge fan of both Writer's Digest.Com, and now of Maria Schneider's Editor Unleashed. I recommend both.
So, if you are currently a member, or become a member of Editor Unleashed, can I beg you on bended knee to read the "Why I Write Contest," and if you are so inclined, to vote on "Scotch Anyone?" pretty please? Oh, and if you could, in good conscience of course, vote five stars, I'll be your best friend. Really.
If you want to offer me a tutorial on Twitter, I'll take that too.
