I decided I wanted to make a mini entry here this morning. Yesterday I posted on Twitter that I wasn’t looking forward to posting a question on a few Facebook writing page because there’s a lot of bullying there I added #screenwriting at the end. Before I had a chance to post my question on Facebook, the Twitter account manager for Finish Line Script competition replied to message them the question. 👀 What?! OKAY! So I did. And we were able to figure out a good solution to my question/problem. It involves the two different realms that Across the Veil has and how to tell readers when we’ve switched worlds. The moral to this story is not to underestimate the power of Twitter. If you are selective of who you follow, you should have a great response to a problem or concern. I love Facebook but I find a nicer community, a supportive one, in Twitter, especially for the film industry.
I live in the boonies, sorta, and finding a buddy that writes that lives nearby isn’t possible. All of my contacts for writing have been through social media. If you don’t have a Twitter account or aren’t active on it, and you’re in the writing or film industry, I highly suggest you start one or become more involved. It can be very helpful. Especially with self promotion. Self publishers can really utilize this sort of networking when done properly.
I’m not an expect by any means, but I like to share when I come across stuff that seems to help. If anyone has a question or want to run something by me writing/screenwriting wise, email me or find me on Twitter and DM me. I check my messages pretty regularly. Again, I’m not an expert but we can work together or find someone else who can answer the questions you may have. Let’s help each other out!
Have a great Thursday everyone!
