The 35 Writers Who Run the Literary Internet

An amazing bit on authors and what they do to be active on the interwebs! I stumbled upon this last night, after my workshop on keeping active in social media.

Flavorwire

The debate as to whether the Internet is good or bad for literature doesn’t seem any closer to resolution now than when it began, years ago, but the fact remains that some people in the literary world are excellent at using Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and even Instagram or Pinterest to communicate with readers and get people interested in what they’re writing. These aren’t the writers who have hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers but only tweet when they have a book come out, or the ones who write a guest blog post every year to get their names back into the conversation.

Hey All

Well, I can’t believe how quickly this summer is just flying by!  Camp NaNo finished up, and I managed to hit my goal, after many ups and downs.   I know that I didn’t manage to get my personal goal accomplished, Vampyres Prophecy is not sitting where I had Mo Thuras, but it is much closer so I will consider that a win!

I have been taking some marvelous workshops over the past couple of months and I am very excited about them!  My original goal when I went into them was learning some new skills and maybe learning how to get somewhere with my art, my writing.  Now that they are drawing to a close I have a whole new plan, a new idea!  I am very excited  to have learned not only some new skills, but that I can utilize my current skills to help other artists!  I am looking into helping people organize not only their day to day life, but their state of being through sets of creative art I am currently making.  It is a challenge to make something that has never been made before, but I am enjoying every second of it!

I hope to bring you along for the journey as well!  Maybe soon I will even have a few more little surveys to see what you think should be included in this new series of art I am creating.

How is your summer going? Are you finding it flying by?  What has consumed you this summer?
