I kind of have a love/hate relationship with twitter.

My husband works for a company that only does twitter stuff, so it pays our bills.  =LOVE

Tons of agents/editors/writers use it obsessively and they actually tweet you back.  =LOVE

I can only speak in 144 characters.  =HATE

There are ten million tweets I miss every time I stop watching like a hawk.  =HATE

I could go on, but I won’t.  Aren’t you glad?  I know the topic has been done to death, and lots of people have valid reasons for hating facebook but it just seems like such a useful platform to reach out, share content, and actually *say* stuff rather than toss out little quips like candy at a parade.

This doesn’t mean I don’t get uber excited when an author I admire or an agent I covet replies to me but for some weird reason I am irritated the whole time I am using the platform.  Anyone else feel that way?


As far as the work goes, I am still plodding along.  I have taken the last like 4 or 5 days off because of tooth pain.  I finally had all the root canals done yesterday thanks to the grace of a friend with an empty amex card and I am having the caps put on tomorrow morning.  Hopefully once that is done I can concentrate again.  I was making good progress.
