Twitter is a must for writers. This is your link to agents, query tips, publishers, and the famous #MSWL aka manuscript wish list. I have learned so much about the business of writing from Twitter. I’ve learned about agencies, authors, and I’ve made many valuable contacts.
Twitter helps you network and explore. You can keep up with what your friends are working on and search what the agents are looking for. There are many hashtags for writers to check out. #mswl, #querytip, #tenqueries, and #ask agent are just a few. My personal favorite is the hashtag #amwriting. There are so many on this crazy ride to publication, and it is comforting to know that we’re not alone on this journey.
Twitter has allowed me to see that there is a special bond that exists among writers and the literary community. We can all relate to each other, because we’re all trying to reach common goals. We are all dreamers on a mission.
Investing in a Twitter account is worthwhile if you’re hoping to grow as a writer. It’s easy to navigate. Don’t let it overwhelm you. You’ll get the hang of it. Before long you’ll know how to utilize it effectively and be better armed on your path to publication. Hang in there. I hope you’re day is full of good writing!
