I’m breaking from the norm because it’s technically my Saturday and I’m feeling a little lazy after a hard week, and because I received my final rejection from this year’s round of submissions, ((sigh)) so I’m moping, just a bit.
I was going to post a Writing Prompt, but nothing quite struck me today, so instead, I thought I’d do a little self-promotion and hopefully find new ways to connect with all of you and find interesting new sites, creative resources, etc. I’m also hoping it will make me seek more things out in order to be useful and resourceful myself.
The following is a list of social media sites and the like and how I currently use them. I’m open to suggestions on how to utilize them better or any others you would like to recommend.
I use Facebook as a means of sharing quotes (y’all know how I love me a quote) and any helpful writing tips, submission deadlines, or other writing related info I come across.
I started out using Twitter as a means of connecting with other screenwriters and people in the industry, but at the moment, I really use it to just geek out. I share Dragon Age and other gaming related topics of interest, Captain America, Doctor Who, Star Wars, etc. and the occasional screenwriting tidbit.
By now I’m sure you’re all aware of my Pinterest fixation. I currently have 34 boards (and counting) that include everything from writing to cosplay to castles to fandoms and so much more.
For screenwriters and industry people, Stage 32 is an organization for networking, promotion, and employment I’m a part of, although I haven’t utilized it to its fullest.
I recently joined Wattpad, but am unsure of how I want to utilize it so far. I was thinking about uploading my fanfic(s) and maybe my flash fiction pieces to get a little feedback…are any of you using this site? Do you have any tips? Do you like it?
I’m planning on updating my YouTube channel to offer more/better playlists you can write to, so stay tuned for that.
If you decide to connect with me on any of these, please send me a message that you’re a fellow blogger, and I’ll be sure to follow you as well!
Wishing you all the best in your endeavors!
