My 140 Top 40 (Tweet Tweet)

Twitter is my jam, more so say than ALL the other social media sites I use. (Sorry Instagram, you're cute, but you're no blue birdie.) For me it is intuitive, engaging, straightforward... There's also the byproduct of thinking in 140 char quips and hashtags. Doh! We don't need to think about that. In the meantime, here are 40 of my favorite (and top favorited) 140 character musings, questions, and comments in the last year or so...
*Note, I said my top 40...I've retweeted about 9,999 awesome thoughts that belong to other people.

36. For some of us, creating fiction is like breathing or taking water, it constitutes a basic need in our lives.
35. "From the steam, Julian appears black and white, colorful, a mutinous uprising of images against bare skin and hazel eyes." SPENT



34. "Life is too brief to shortchange happiness.” (Young adult contemporary novel, Spent.)



33. I cringe when I have to take out commas to make a tweet fit 140 characters.



32. Breathe life into your sentences, think and write in active verbs.

30. being a storyteller, a damn awesome job and privilege.



29. Leisure, what a luxury.

27You know you're a writer when...the desire to work on a manuscript electrifies with urgency, passion, and excitement.



26Why we need to READ (& write) YA "The communion of words on the page binds us to..."

17. Books make life rich.  
16When you listen to a song so many times, it's a part if your thoughts. That.

8Today, write a great book, or chapter, or sentence...or light bulb that exact right word.  
7You know you're a writer when...something major (or minor) happens & you're trying to figure out how to turn it into a story. 
6Does anyone else suffer from I-just-finished-a-book-and-don't-want-it-to-be-over remorse? This happened with  Sinner. Sigh.
5. If I could take a nap anywhere right now, I'd go to the Weasley's.
