Today is Day 9 of the March Slice of Life, a chance to write daily in March, a chance to share slices/snippets of our lives. You can find the challenge at “Two Writing Teachers“.
Twitter has become an obsession lately. I did not use it much before the Olympics but turned to it to get first hand news. But as I followed more people, I got drawn into many different avenues – writing, news, art, politics and even horse racing.
In the past couple of days alone I have:
-discovered and took part in a webinar on stenciling with Julie Balzer
-discovered a decluttering challenge for Lent (40 Bags in 40 Days)
-found numerous articles and supports for my writing. One in particular was a look at the 6 editorial drafts that Helene Boudreau went through to revise her picture book “I Dare You Not to Yawn”
-found like-minded people who despise what our Tory government is doing
-cheered on our ParaOlympians
-found “21 reasons to make art” – an article by Adam Singer
-laughed, teared up, gotten angry and enjoyed so many comments.
Twitter is so many things, but it is definitely turning into a learning tool for me. I am addicted I must say.
