Twitter Suggestions and Writing Hashtags

So now you're on Twitter but how do you find other like-minded souls? Hashtags and suggestions of people to follow by Twitter are the ways to go. These two elements help you network. Networking and remaining active by engaging and using hashtags is the key to becoming a force on this social media site.

If you aren't aware, suggestions pop up when you click on someone’s profile/twitter feed. You then can click on the people Twitter suggests and follow them. You can also peruse through their tweets and note hashtags they've used.

Having a popular hash tag to attach to your tweets helps you interact and find people who write and read or have similar tastes. You'll find a community of people you never knew existed. 


Even as I've written this more hashtags have been invented and will continue to be invented. That's the internet for you. New and trending twitter hashtags are made up everyday so search what's trending by pressing the explore button or look through your own feed at what people are hash-tagging. 

If you want more hashtags, search other writer’s twitter feeds and trending hashtags. Most of the ones I listed below are for posting quotes from your novel, sharing or talking about writing. Once you search these on twitter, you'll get an idea what the hashtags are.

Query Wins for Me

I am getting ready to query again after about a six-month hiatus and looked back through my records of responses and was quite pleased. 
In the past, I’ve had many close calls. I’ve had full requests from publishers and agents alike for a few different books I queried. I could have given up with the mounting rejections but the rejections I’ve gotten over the last year and a half have MOSTLY been inspiring. This might not make sense to anyone who hasn’t been through the querying trenches but there is such a thing as a good rejection. A good “no” per se.
In posting this I want to say that if you are a writer seeking publication, you need to keep writing, revising and editing…but especially keep submitting.
Here are a few of my rejections:
“I loved the concept and was riveted by the world you have created, but ultimately I just didn’t fall in love with the voice. It’s not for me, but I wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.”
‘There was so much here I admired and enjoyed,…

On Critiquing and Being Critiqued

Congratulations on taking first step to improving your work.  Remember, there is always more to learn and practice helps.

On Critiquing
Being critiqued and critiquing others is about trust. Whether you are trusting someone to read your work and be honest with their feedback or someone is trusting you with the task, each side must be being willing to be honest and let go of judgment. 
​It is not about stroking your ego ​or someone else's. Narcissism is not allowed in the critiquing world. You don't benefit by people telling you your work is good - that only makes you feel good.

When getting your work critiqued, the intent of the reader is to help and support your talent. Always reme​ember this. During a critique session, a fellow writer should r…
