I have established an author page on Facebook. I even joined Twitter (@DianaDaviswrite) the other day. I am developing the website for my novel as well. I worry about becoming too much of a social butterfly online. It’s easy to lose hours surfing online if you’re not careful.
I follow a lot of writing and publishing sites online. Learning about the market and the craft are very important. Sometimes I wonder if I spend more time on this than actually writing. There is an odd side effect, though. When I do write, I’m more focused on the reader. This is not a side effect I would have expected, but I’m grateful for it. I just have to maintain the balance between social butterfly and diligent writer!
