Join on Twitter
Are you looking to spend dedicated time each week engaging with an awesome group of fellow writers? Look no further. The #StorySocial Twitter chat is the place to be.
Every Wednesday night at 9pm Eastern, I host this hour-long chat that sees an average of over 50 weekly participants. Throughout the hour, I pose 5 - 6 questions that keep the conversation rolling on the night's topic.
What kind of topics do we chat about, you ask? Here are some that we've discussed in recent weeks:
- Creating well-developed villains
- Streamlining your writing process
- How to promote your book on Twitter (how meta!)
- Giving + receiving critical literary feedback
- Becoming a smarter reader
- Building the perfect writing routine
And many more!
But how can you join the chat? Easy. Here are your 5 steps to chatting success:
- Create a Twitter account.
- Log in to Twitter at 9pm Eastern on Wednesday nights.
- Enter #StorySocial in the search bar.
- Click on the "Latest" tab to view the up-to-date conversation.
- Follow along with the questions, interact, and make new friends!
(P.S. Don't forget to use the #StorySocial hashtag in your own tweets to ensure that they show up in the chat feed.)
And if you want to kick your chatting experience up a notch, use this tutorial to set up a more stream-lined, easy-to-follow chatting experience via TweetDeck.
This will make replying to questions, catching up on chat notifications, and keeping up with the feed a million times simpler. Case in point? It's the very web app I use to host the chat. (And yes: it's 100% free!)
