NaNoWriMo Update

I've been a little distracted lately, what with Philcon and such. It also doesn't help that I've come down with a slight cold. Still, I got my new voice recorder working and managed to finish Chapter 2 yesterday.

I'm going to make a trip into Center City to pick up the Wild Violet mail with KFP and hope to get more dictated. Wish me luck!

In other news, they've asked us to answer a few interview questions this week at America's Next Author, so please stop by and check it out (and if you haven't voted yet this week, please do so):

I'm still in about the middle of the pack, but I've been trying to expand my audience. I've been networking on Twitter and Facebook, and I've sent out a press release through a multitude of free news release sites, along with sending it to all the local and hometown newspapers I could think of.

If nothing else, this experience is teaching me a lot about self-promotion!

You're awesome! Thanks so much! Do you have a Twitter account? I'd love to connect there, if you do. I've started using it a lot more lately.

I'm having a hard time embracing Twitter :) I may give it a shot when I get back to the USA.

You're not the only one. I've heard that from people a lot. My advice, for sanity's sake, is that if you do decide to join Twitter, you should create lists that can divide your contacts into manageable portions. Do remember, however, that the lists are public (although you might be able to make them seen only by you; not sure about that). Still, my "writing" group is usually the main one I look at on a daily basis.

I also highly recommend using Tweetdeck, which you can use on the Web or, I believe, as a Smartphone app. Once you figure it out, it makes it much easier to manage messages, etc., especially if you have two accounts, like I do (@alycewilson and @WildVioletMag).
