It's the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for IWSG, the Insecure Writer's Support Group, and I've triple checked this month to make sure I've got the letters in the right order.
I've been around the blogosphere less this past month and the blame falls mostly on one source: Twitter (@hektorkarl if you want to find me). I know Twitter gets bashed as a waste of time, and it can become flooded with spam, but I actually find it a great place to connect with other writers/people. And whereas as blog time tends to eat into other types of writing/reading/creating, Twitter can be fit into the cracks in one's schedule. It constantly flows. Surprising conversations erupt. Sometimes news breaks.
Finally, no matter the time of day, there's always someone on Twitter eager to write. It's peer pressure made to order. Just find a favorite hashtag (I like #1k1hr, but there are many out there), and someone will keep you honest with your goals.
So there's my excuse for the lack of blogging. (The blogging will likely pick up again when I get in the mood to get mythical again, but feel free to search me out on Twitter in the meantime.)
Anyone else find themselves drifting toward Twitter? (Twitter haters are welcome to pipe up as well.)
