“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
~ J. R. R. Tolkien
The great thing about Tolkien is that he was on to something here. Especially in the social media world today. Do you know everyone you are following? What about the ones following you? The chances that you know absolutely everyone is small.
AND THAT IS ALRIGHT!
You don’t need to be best friends with absolutely everyone. That is the amazing thing about groups such as the #writingcommunity. We all work together for the common goal of advice and support for our writing careers. I know for me, I would like to know a little more, and interact with some people who really capture the essence of what the writing community on Twitter is all about.
One such author is Serah Johnson (soon to be Brightside). Usually there is not a day that goes by where I don’t see that eye show up on my feed. There seems to always be someone commenting or sharing information from Serah. I think that is awesome, and it really shows what we can accomplish when we work together.
