And guess what? I think they're right.
I resisted for quite a while, thinking it a colossal waste of time and energy. One more thing to suck up my Dedication to Discipline. But in a moment of weakness (and honesty about exactly where, on a scale of 1-10, my Dedication to Discipline actually was), I took the leap.
Here are some of the benefits I see right away:
- People I didn't know are following me, and I'm getting to know them a bit as well;
- I've seen for myself that writers write;
- There's a gentle accountability available to me if I tweet that I'm going to write. After all, I now have witnesses.
It's that last one that is huge. I'm thinking about using it for weight loss as well.
In the meantime, I'd love to see you on Twitter.
CR: The Best Revenge by Stephen White. So far, this one is going on my Top 5 list for 2009. Cool.
It's all better with friends.
