The first time I joined Twitter was back in October 2011. I had no idea what Twitter was, but apparently it was the place to be. I barely knew any writers online. Honestly, I had no idea what I was doing.
I was never one of those people who went back to read old tweets, but I thought it would be really cool to go back into the archives to see what I was posting about. Over the years I had an on-again/off-again relationship with Twitter. So I probably had 3 accounts total, but my original account was the only archive that I saved. I had a total of 2,594 tweets/replies/retweets, before I officially closed the account back on July 21st, 2016.
I’m not going to post every single one of them, especially replies since you only can see one side of the conversation.
(Original Tweet: 10-19-11) Writing…..my true outlet……time to make it happen (Clearly, I had no idea how to tweet)
(Original Tweet: 10-19-11) Goal: 3 tv pilots….2 spec scripts…..2 screenplays….only the beginning (I was definitely determined)
(Original Tweet: 10-19-11) #WalkingDead spec script….making it happen (Walking Dead was my very first script)
(Original Tweet: 10-19-11) Over thinking can be my downfall at times. Great advice I heard recently..”just shut the f**k up and do it!” (I have no idea where this advice came from)
(Original Tweet: 10-20-11) #WalkingDead marathon, reading a script and taking notes. Wish everyday could be like this….would be a lot more productive:) (I wish I had more days like this)
(Original Tweet: 10-19-11) Found “the wizard of oz” and “the rocky horror picture show” scripts at my library! Who would have thought?! (This was before I knew about all of the scripts online. Such a newbie.)
(Original Tweet: 10-22-11) #LiesPeopleAlwaysTell….”I’m listening.” Are you really hearing what I’m saying or are you going through the motions? (I wonder if this hashtag was trending and I was trying to be like the cool kids?)
(Original Tweet: 10-22-11) @girlonguy I’ve been waiting for this episode! Huge fan of #WalkingDead. Downloading now:) (I still listen to the old episodes of this podcast. So what I needed to hear at the time. May have to go revisit it.)
(Original Tweet: 10-23-11) #writing now….can’t pretend to sleep any longer (So many restless nights)
(Original Tweet: 10-24-11) #WalkingDead!!!!!! (I love my enthusiasm back then, I need to find that fire again.)
