Saturday success

Saturday Lynn Hazen and I taught another class on Social Media for authors, this time an all day event at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.

We had a full house (almost too full as it was tough to get between the tables so we could help people) and I think everyone had a great time and hopefully learned a lot. Quite a few people set up their first blogs while right there in the room with us and I think they were a bit amazed at how easy it was. I am still trying to figure out what to tell people about the differences (minus java script capability here on LJ) of the various platforms and why you should choose one over the other.

Hats off to all your fearless people who took the class and then took the plunge into the the social media madness.

It is still such a HUGE topic to try and cover in one day, especially with so many people at different stages.

I think I am going to set up a local social media "drop in" clinic sort of thing, maybe once a month, where people can bring their laptops and work on a particular aspect of their own social media system with my help. If you're in the Silicon Valley area and this sounds interesting to you, leave me a comment and I'll add you to my notification list.

If you are looking for more info online, don't forget to check out the new blog in town, The Happy Accident, where Greg Pincus, aka Gottabook, encourages you to play in traffic and set yourself up for the "happy accidents" that often occur with social networking.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
