I'm forty-five and new to the world of social media. I've been writing a humorous memoir for longer than I care to admit. I had no idea what I was getting into! Detailed book proposal, writers' events, blogging--even tweeting, which, until about five minutes ago, I refused to comprehend. I'm just beginning to see how this all works. Luckily, excitement and fascination are beginning to eclipse my resistance.
Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
"Asylum," essay, published in The Battered Suitcase and Tryst.
"Expiration Date," essay published in Mused Magazine.
"The Puzzle Commission," due to be published in Monkey Puzzle in August.

Just wanted to say "hi." I'm fifty-two and new to social media, too, which I also refused to comprehend until just recently. Really, my Twitter feed *still* looks like algebra to me.
How's your book coming along? I hope to look into some of your posts above. I write memoir, too, but in my blog http://www.losingfarther.com/ They're pretty much stories shaped from life, with a post-breast-cancer thread running through. I'm looking for readers as well as a community of memoir-lovers.
Gotta run now but hope to return to your page soon!
Ah gum chewers. My sister and I feel exactly like you do, as a matter of fact I have said things to people about their gum chewing. My sister and I can't stand people who smack their food and chew with their mouth's open. We think we got this way because our mother and grandmother got strict with us about gum chewing and eating our food when we hit the third grade. We both remember the same incident. I guess the pressure made us neurotic about those things.
I have to ask you about something. When I wrote my book RUN I did it totally without direction and the only editing I had was 2 family members and 2 friends. People who've read it really liked it, but there are major problems. The formatting is terrible, and I mean bad. It's so bad that after I saw it in print I didn't write another thing. In May of this year I renewed my determination and found a degree program for creative writing. Boy what a smart decision that was! I'm so pleased with what I'm doing now I'm afraid to promote my book because I think it could ruin me before I get started. What do you think I should do?
...and I never even mentioned the TIME THIEF component! Grrrrrrrrrrr!!! Definitely keep in touch! My writing is hit and miss. While I blog write on http://hideaheart.wordpress.com, I've longed to write a number of stories, but can't seem to get around to it.
BTW: When you write on your blog are you also keeping a printed copy or CD copy of your work as back up?
PS I tried sending this as a reply to your message but SW must be too busy because the 'send' button wasn't working!
