Facebook Nation

I recently created a profile on Facebook, at first to follow the lives of the younger members of my families.  But I’ve since gone Facebook crazy with adding apps, including trying to add my blog posts.  Although this old gal has a bit of a learning curve with Facebook, it is insanely easy to set up compared to MySpace and much more fun.  But, you may ask, is there any value in Facebook for the aspiring writer?   Jump over to Wicked Wordsmith for a great post on “Using Facebook to Your Advantage.”  Blogger Angela Wilson interviews Mari Smith on the pros and cons of using Facebook as a marketing tool.  It’s a great interview with lots of tips and insights for tyros like me and, maybe, you too!

New Year’s Resolution

The Writer  has a (too) brief interview with Kristin Landon, sci-fi author, in its January 2009 issue.  This advice from Landon is something that has taken me years to learn and yet I still make the mistake.  So here is it as (one of) my New Year’s Resolution:

“Wedging yourself into a genre because it sells is the road to mediocrity; so if your heart isn’t in it, don’t write it. Find the issues that spark your passion and build your story around them. If this is really what you want–if you’re telling your stories–then you’ve got a chance.”

Happy New Year, everyone!
