Nobody really knows what works and what doesn't. Every workshop and book and article I've read does have one common thing that they say. Do what's comfortable you. Leave the stuff that makes you uncomfortable alone.
With that in mind, I am going to quit tweeting. I hate it. I actually really enjoy twitter. Also, it's apparently dangerous for you. I love reading what OTHER people are doing. I like Maureen's tweets and Nathan Fillion cracks me up. My life, however, feels boring to me when I try to tweet about it.
I don't know if it's the 140 character limit that keeps me from elaborating the way I like or if I'm just dull as yesterday's dishwater. My tweets fall flat even to my eyes and I'm predisposed to like me.
So that's it. I'm done. I'll probably retweet other people's stuff on occasions and maybe reply to people here and there, but no more self-generated tweeting. I'm done.
Is there anything that you decided you hated too much to keep doing even if a bunch of the other cool kids were doing it?
