Earlier today, my dear writer friend, Dawn Kirby and myself decided that it was time for writers to unite beyond simple impersonal tweets. By this, we have created #fbwriter.
A hash tag on twitter, to post a link of a facebook “like page” with #fbwriter in the tweet allows an index, so to speak, of links for writers from all over the world- of all genres. Dawn, actually made the sister support of the hash tag by creating a page on facebook, allowing writers to post their facebook pages into an index there as well. Facebook also offers more than the quick connections of twitter. The facebook hash tag page gives writers a meeting room for discussions, support, and general questions.
Sometimes, the world of a writer, published or not, can be a rather lonely place. Even with friends, family, and fans to support you, a writer carries self doubt, mostly when it comes into their entire heart bleeding into the pages of a novel; a writer’s precious baby. With the creation of #fbwriter, Dawn and I hope to ease the minds of other writers in this small spot on the web where it is okay to need advice, support, or just another means to get your name out there in this vast literary world.
