Will Write For Chocolate-Eva Discovers Twitter

Speaking of Twitter, I'm "inkyelbows." And to you writers out there, consider taking my 1000 Words A Day or 500 Words A Day challenge!

Too often, I find that writers start motivational challenges like NaNoWrimo with enthusiasm and good intentions, but give up when they start missing their daily targets for more than a few days in a row…undermining their confidence and defeating the purpose of the original challenge.

I also wanted a challenge that lasted the whole year rather than just a month.

For more info, please see this link.

I'm still gradually moving over the WWFC archived cartoons, so please don't panic if you find a blank entry in the archives. Hoping to get them all moved over soon!

So true! This is what happened to me, and now I tweet ten times a day!

Twitter isn't a distraction for me. I use twitter to record my work for the day by announcing I got this chapter done, this 15-page edit of novella is completed, and some idiot is outside is playing the music too loud from the parking lot.

I got my 700-page double-spaced rough draft of my first novel done after one year and one week of writing a little bit every day, burning through a six-week time reserve and being only a week late. Next challenge after a three-month break is to edit the next draft in three months. Of course, I'll be writing my 400-page second novel during the three-month break.

I'm on Twitter periodically. I think I'm at the point where I'm wondering whether it's useful (or even applicable) for my writing projects. So, far freelancing has been good and mainly my projects have been through referrals. And not so much with anything I've been doing online (i.e. Twitter, blog etc).

Nice. I think I'll follow you :)

First time here, really like the catch phrase. I think you must be writing a lot in Valentine day.

Run, Eva, Run! That cute wee Twitterbird starts out so harmlessly ... then, before you know it, has grown talons like you wouldn't believe!

I've gotten some GREAT leads and information on Twitter, though. It's the first time I've really felt connected to the Writing World out there.

Regarding your 500 and 1,000 words a day challenge, can I include how many words I've cut if I'm editing? Just a thought ...
