The writer's road can be a lonely one but it doesn't have to be. Have you ever wanted to chat with other writers, meet agents, editors of publishing housing, and authors? Or at least ease drop on their chat? You can achieve this by attending conferences but let's face it, they are getting hard to afford in this economy. There is another way.
Every Thursday night on Twitter there was a fabulous chat called #Scribechat. I met a lot of authors, agents, editors, and fellow writers by attending that chat. Unfortunately the hostess, Lia Keyes, had to step down due to other commitments so the chat is going away. I'm very grateful to her because I've made amazing friends, connections, and learned a lot from #Scribechat. You can find Lia hosting #SteamPunkChat on Fridays on Twitter at 6:00pm PT.
For those of you who loved Scribechat and are sad to see it go, have no fear, we have a plan. My friend and fellow chatter TS Tate,or @TeeTate as she is known on Twitter, plan to start a new chat in Scribechat's absence. The new chat will be called #WritersRoad and we'll be discussing everything about writing, reading, and getting published. The first chat will be a week from today on Thursday January 6th at 6:00pm PT on Twitter. We'll be chatting about all aspects of the #WritersRoad. A few of my friends who are debuting soon may be dropping in as well as a few represented friends and many who are just looking to learn. Did I mention there will be a giveaway for the very first chat? You don't want to miss it.
There are many ways to join in a Twitter chat but the one I've had the best luck with is TweetChat. Go to the link and just type WritersRoad into the box. You will need a Twitter account. Mark you calendars and join us!
