  • Are there enough hours in the day for all that, after you do your writing?

    • This is how I want to approach it, spend a set amount of time and not get sucked in.

      • And that only takes you twenty minutes? I'd be all morning since I am technologically inept

            • Agree!! But it is a learning process, I would even go as far to say an empowering process

                • Social media can be useful for spotting competitions and open calls, hearing about what agents are looking for and seeing new releases. Can help make you feel connected to other writers too, as long as you don’t get sucked in too much.

                  Not all bad. I followed you on Twitter Velyr.

                  • I agree with Kate social media, especially Twitter is a great place to hear about competitions, follow literary magazine and read short stories. There's a great writing community on Twitter, I found people really supportive and approachable.

                    I've started following you on Twitter & Instagram Velyr.

                      • Hi,

                        I have followed you velyrhorde on Twitter, FB and Instagram. 

                        I can be found as Alisa Costin everywhere: @AlisaCostin for Twitter, alisa.costin for Instagram and Alisa Costin on FB. But I spent very little time on social media.

                        I was thinking on taking a pen name too, but have not decided on any name yet.

                                      • Susanna feel free to DM me on Twitter if you have any questions about author branding or social media. I've done a couple of lectures at our local writing conference about that exact topic!

                                      • What confuses me about Facebook is how the personal and author pages work. I have an author page and some of my friends have 'liked' it. Does this mean that only the people who have 'liked' it get alerted to what I post on it?

                                        Also I'm confused about notifications. When I or friends post, what determines whether I or they are notified by email?

                                          • Thanks V, that's useful on the distinctions but just to clarify one point, if a friend from my personal page 'likes' my author page they are in effect 'following' it and get alerted to posts like any external follower does and if they don't, chances are they won't see what is being posted there?

                                            • Exactly! Followers see your author posts just like your friends see your personal stuff.
