Platforming can sometimes be as clear as mud. Other times it’s more like dense London fog. It’s enough to make one mad as a hatter and keeps you as busy as a cat on a hot tin roof. When all we really want is for it to be as easy as A.B.C. and clear as a bell.
They say to get your name out there as a writer and to become larger than life you need to blog, Facebook, twitter or is that supposed to be tweet on twitter?? Anyway we’re supposed to build our platform Ford tough. How do they (meaning those that know what they’re doing)keep up with it all? You have to be tough as nails and have nerves of steel…that’s how. Oh be as smart as a tack when it comes to all the platforming stuff. All of this makes my head pound like a drum and my eyes bleed(not really).
It can also cause the following side effects indigestion, hiccups, night sweats, nightmares, hives, twitchy eyes, road rage, restless leg syndrome, wrinkles. Sometimes your sick as a dog and turn white as a sheet. If any of these symptoms last for more than forever…keep calm you ARE a writer.
It all makes me want to consume a large amount of alcohol and go running through the streets with a sharpened pencil screaming about run-on’s, dangling modifiers, blogging, Facebook likes, tweeting or is twittering I never can get that straight as an arrow. I’m stubborn as a mule, so I’ll just keep working at is slow as a turtle until I get it figured out.
Until then Keep Writing!!
