Twitter Inspires You To Write Better

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me?
Leave me your opinion.

Twitter is a web site for people to
make friends, keep in contact
with old ones, give a holla-out
to neighbors, and a shout-out
to co-workers.

"Who should sign-up for a
Twitter account?" You

It accommodates people from
every walk of life. There are
writers, marketers, publishers,
coaches, freelancers from
every field imaginable,
and the list goes on.

"How can Twitter make me
a better writer?" You

First, get an account.
Type Twitter: "What are
you doing?" in your
search engine.

Click on: "Twitter--What are
you doing?"

The Twitter web site pops
up, and then create an

Twitter inspires you to
write better by limiting
your writing space.

You are allowed one
hundred and forty characters
to convey a message.
The spaces between words,
any symbols used, letters,
and punctuation count.

Twitter inspires the best
from you by pushing
your think mode button.
You have no choice, but
to be concise.

You stumble-fumble to
find the perfect word,
combination of words,
to paint an exact written

There isn't space to be
chatty, or provide bloated
words. Get to the point.
It's essential you select
words wisely.

Look at words upside down,
inside out, to find descriptive
words. Or, use as few words
as possible to display your

"What do you mean?" A few

Gather up verbs to sprinkle
throughout your post.

Obliterate the adverb-adjective
using tendency.

It's normal to type more than
Twitter has room for. Simply,
try again.

Here's an idea. Aim for
Twitter's capacity. Type your
post elsewhere. Did you meet
the limit?

If yes, good job.

If no, take out all the words
just taking up space. Any
word not vital to the meaning
of your post, delete it. Are
you using verbs? Mix in
short words.

I, personally, look forward to
Retweet(RT). Retweet is an
accepted practice on Twitter.

It's done by copying someone's
text into the box: "What are you
doing now?"

Here is how you'd "Retweet"
this post.

You start with "RT" or "Retweet,"
and my name.

High-light the post with your cursor,

Click the "Update" button, and
you're done.

In closing, Twitter inspires you
to write better by confining your
writing space. It demands your
best writing.

About Me

My photo

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
