I have banged on about Twitter and Pinterest here as well as, in my last post, Spotify – all great tools for sharing work, ideas, pictures and sounds within a community. I have recently begun to dabble in Tumblr, a micro-blog site that lets you add all of the above. So, why the need for another social network, you may ask. Is this yet another ploy to avoid writing?
No, I earnestly answer. The writing is going fine, thanks for asking – have topped 100K for the second draft of the second book (but who’s counting? Oh, yes, I am) and happily writing may way toward the end of the war. And what Tumblr offers is a space for “less” writing, as it were, than a blog. Here, you expect text. Here, sometimes the photos are a bit wonky, a bit hit-and-miss. Tumblr is fast. It isn’t a space for blogging. It’s for little thoughts, little ideas, little pictures, things that don’t merit a post, ragged bits of things that are flying about in the jumble of my head. If you’d like to have a visit, click here for my Tumblr and see what’s there. It’s called The Victory Stitch.
