That's one kind of timing.
But here's the another.
DON'T wait until [fill in the blank] to develop a web presence. DON'T.
You all have something to say. You're at your place in this process just as surely as I'm at mine.
So maybe you start with things that are grabbing your attention in the news. (American Idol, anyone?) Or maybe you just say something about everything you have to learn and what you learned this day. Know what I'm saying?
Let your family and your friends know that this writing thing is consuming you. Getting published is your goal (if it is), and you're taking it seriously. Maybe they will be the only ones that will pay attention to you for a while. Fine. Get them on board. Let them know where your heart is.
Start with something. Announce it. Announce it here. Twitter me. I'll re-tweet.
Just stop waiting. Get serious. Just do it. You can always upgrade later.
Are you listening?
Gotta get to the game. We're losing. Might be too late for my shouts to make a difference, but a girl's gotta try.
CR: Exposure by Brandilyn Collins. Odd thought . . . Brandilyn has such a presence of her own, it's sometimes hard for me to let go of her power and focus on the power of her words.
It's all better with friends.
