You probably don’t tweet. That doesn’t mean you can’t join the twittersphere at twitter.com and follow other people’s tweets. Eventually you’ll pipe up when you have something to tweet about. Meanwhile, you can find out a lot in a short period of time, since each tweet is limited to 140 characters. WriteMyMemoirs does tweet—typically to alert people to the latest published or rumored memoir—and we also follow others. Looking over the latest tweets from those we follow, we thought we’d share.
From GothamWriters, we learn that Anne Tyler once said, “For me, writing something down was the only road out.” TIMECulture recommends Backward Ran Sentences: The Best from Wolcott Gibbs.

RandomHouse mentions that—who knew?—today is World Pasta Day. To retweet that post: “Holy Ravioli!”
Use Twitter as just another tool to guide you to sources and keep you motivated to write your memoirs. Do a search on twitter.com for “books,” “memoir,” “autobiography,” “life story,” “author” and anything else you think may pull up tweets you can follow for information pertaining to your memoir. Your own tweets can trace your journey of writing your memoir and link to online sources that help you. And don’t forget to follow WriteMyMemoirs on Twitter
