It’s a foggy monday in the Bay Area and I am settled down in front of the computer with a cup of coffee. Ready to do rewrites, again, still. I’ve been spending too much time on Twitter, which by the way, if you haven’t followed me there I would love to see you. I’m at @jessimcbrayer on Twitter.
Which brings me to the Social Media Time Suck. As an author, I know how important self-promotion is, but it takes up so much time. It also is a fine line between “look at me, look at me” and simply being present. I have to admit I am shy when it comes to social media. I’m much more of a stalker than a tweeter or a poster on Facebook. I try to post but I can’t seem to find anything witty enough to say. I need a good hash tag. Any suggestions on one I can start? I see a lot of authors doing clever lines about their books. I love that. I don’t like it when they just repeat verbatim excerpts from their books over and over again. Blatant self-promotion is not my thing.
Come on universe, give me some ideas and clever repartee. I need all the help I can get.
