"I love the one about the Yogurt! One of my favorites is I think by Groucho Marx:  Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read. Maybe I'll go Twitter that now!"

If You Think of Something Funny, Tweet It

Now that I've been on Twitter for a year, I have learned that people who tweet with humor and wit are a lot more fun to follow. The wittiest tweeters are also rewarded with more followers than staid and boring Twitterers.This means that we She Writers have a leg up on Twitter. We come to the world's largest water cooler…See More

DOES PHOTOGRAPHY HELP YOU "SEE" BETTER AND IMPROVE YOUR WRITING?

Posted on December 29, 2011 at 12:06pm 7 Comments

Does anyone else use photography to add to your observational skills in writing? I take my pocket-size Canon S95 with me wherever I go. Caught this mundane scene of a traffic cop directing people out of a garage on a gray day in Seattle. The light gathering of this camera is awesome, but even better, it made me "see" the scene with new eyes. Love to see your work if you're doing this.…

Cynthia,

Great to hear from you. I'll be blogging on AWP soon, but now I'm busy with my author blog tour. I write creative nonfiction--have a nursing memoir published. I blog at loisroelofs.com  Now back to my work for the tour!

At 11:51am on March 3, 2012, Kamy Wicoff said…
It was so lovely to meet you! I'm on the train back into Chicago from Highland Park now, so sorry I missed the morning gathering. I do think we should do an AWP recap on She Writes...

Hi Cynthia!  I just did a second post about the AWP event -- the first one didn't seem to reach all the relevant people.  Do you mind posting the info about your panel again there?  It's on the main page of SW now...see you in Chicago!

Hi, Cynthia,

I'd love to attend your panel and meet you at AWP. I have yet to plan my days at the Conference, but will contact you at a later date to see if we can get together. Thanks for reaching out!

-Want

Cynthia, definitely, let's try to meet up at AWP. I will only be there on Saturday and I'm reading on a panel just before the She Writes event. But maybe earlier on Saturday? :-)

At 2:09pm on October 18, 2011, Angela Orlowski-Peart said…
Awww. Cynthia. I really feel honored. Thank you, dear :-) I'm working on my blog post about the social media avatars. I will link there to your post.
At 1:16pm on October 18, 2011, Deborah Batterman said…
I appreciated your (wise) comment in the 'share your Twitter handle' discussion. And I look forward to your posts, etc.
At 2:33pm on October 2, 2011, Brooke Warner said…

Hi Cynthia,

I'm not sure actually. I don't think the fact that you're writing will affect your experience of the class too much. We're prepared to answer any questions you might have about fiction---and the issues you face as a writer are certainly the same! :)

At 3:47pm on September 29, 2011, Angela Orlowski-Peart said…

Cynthia,

I'm so flattered! Yes, of course you can use my photo for your class. What address should I email the bigger photo to?

 

I use this picture on all my social media sites - I guess I'm doing a good job branding :-)

Here is the link to my blog www.cheeriosandpearlsstories.blogspot.com

I need to change the address to my name but I'm having some issues with that. My Twitter, Facebook etc. are all under Angela Orlowski-Peart

I live in Seattle and would love to learn more about your class. Can you email me with some details?

Thanks,

Angela Orlowski-Peart

At 4:49am on September 29, 2011, Brooke Warner said…
Hi Cynthia, I think we have five people committed so far. We won't do the class unless we have at least several more than that, so I do hope you'll sign up! Let me know if you have any questions.
