  1. As an agent, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how necessary you think it is for writers to be on Twitter. This is a decision I’ve been struggling with… So many writers say its essential, but I worry about it just becoming one more time-suck for me.


    1. What’s great about Twitter is finding like-minded people. So you’ll find writers in the same position as you. It makes writers feel like a community. That being said, it can be a big time suck so you have to take it in moderation. I think Twitter is a wonderful resource and community and always recommend joining if you have the time and inclination to join.


What do you think? I love hearing from you!
