It’s amazing how much one can learn from Twitter. I often use the hashtag #writing and come across many interesting features, articles and links that open up so much that is new to me. Today, I was interested to see a blog post by writer Kelsye Nelson, “In Six Words or Fewer..” Here , we are asked to write a story on “Regret” using six or fewer words, Some of the responses were quite thought provoking. My contribution was just one word, “Sorry!” It’s difficult at times to express regret. Having to say a sincere “Sorry” often doesn’t come as easily as you think it should!
I am a retired man and spend most of my time writing or thinking about writing and blogging. Many of you hold multiple jobs, write at odd hours whenever you can snatch some time off from your busy schedules. For you, Jamie Todd Rubin, the science fiction writer’s blog post may be not only of interest but could help you find more time for writing. Rubin writes of his experience in using RescueTime, an application which answers the million dollar question all of us wrestle with, ” Where did my time go?”
To conclude, here’s a tweet I liked. Alex Myers has this tweet: The most important thing in writing is to have written. I can always fix a bad page. I can’t fix a blank one. ~Nora Roberts
