We want to touch base on the blog posted by Winslow Eliot, regarding our wonderful friends on Twitter. My co-writer DJ and myself, have recently joined the ranks of aspiring novelists. In doing so, we ventured further into social networking by joining Twitter and have never had a dull moment since. We have met with nothing but honest support and friendship from the literary community.
How can you call someone a friend having never laid eyes upon them. The answer for us came, surprisingly, 140 characters at a time. Friendship comes as a word of encouragement, a suggestion or lead to help with our career and in an honest outpouring of love and support for our endeavors. Toss in a little humor, be it literary or otherwise, and you have found something in the most unlikely of places.
Authors, editors, publishers and others, have reached out to us and extended their hand and in blind faith, we have accepted it. We are thankful for having taken that leap of faith, and thankful for the friends we have found in doing so.
To the right, we have listed the links to web sites and blogs of friends we've met on Twitter, and everyday we are adding more. You all mean so much to us and we look forward to sharing this journey with you, our new-found friends.
Thanks for everything you do, say and give. Your simple tweets provide us with insight, passion, inspiration and of course humor. It is truly our honor to call you all friends.
