On National Day on Writing, Tweeting, And Why I Write
That's how I looked at Twitter for the longest time: a busy airport. Tons of noise, but not a lot of talking.
At least, that's how it seemed to me at first. But then you get on the plane, and you actually get to know the person next to you. The person tells you about their favorite books, food, family, the dog, whatever. You get to know someone a little, someone you otherwise would've just passed by on your way to bagage claim.
It's pretty cool.
Here's why I'm talking Twitter: I caught this cool article in the NY Times on National Day on Writing--and it's today! The article suggests you Tweet about why you write, so I did.
Neat stuff. Join me, all.
