Author's Resource: 101 Days of Facebook and Twitter Questions
One question a day for 101 consecutive days.

Last week we discussed 5 Ways to Find More Daily Writing Time. And this week we'll be switching gears back to my favorite topic: Social media.

One of the most engaging things an author can do on their Facebook and Twitter pages is to ask their fans questions. But sometimes it can be difficult to find author/bibliophile related questions. So I've compiled a list of my favorite 101 for your use.

Included are three types:

  1. Fill in the blanks
  2. Opened ended
  3. This, this, or that.

Just copy and paste each question onto your Facebook or Twitter (or other social media) page and voila!

Here they are (in groups of 10):

1. Fill in the blank: My favorite writer is _______.

Note: If you’re planning on asking all 101 questions in consecutive days, I’d recommend scheduling them in advance.  Facebook's scheduling application and Tweetdeck (by Twitter) are two easy tools.

Of course you don't have to use them all.  Just pick and choose your favorites.

Please let me know how these questions worked for you. I'd love to hear about your experience.

You can reach me here on Blogspot, Google+ or Facebook.

Please join me next Monday as we explore The Power of Writing Prompts.

Till then!
Good luck & happy writing!
