I don’t have a social media policy or practice; sometimes I put stuff live online, sometimes I’m quiet. Just like the way that sometimes I’m out meeting people, while other times I’ll stay in and write. And yet it’s been bothering me for while… should I have a more consistent approach? Every so often I’ll read a piece by another author that confirms this niggling feeling, and here is the latest instalment: Irish writer Laurence OBryan, in his blog, has tackled the subject of writers and social media in a way that is both useful and entertaining, thanks in part to the wacky photo of James Joyce, (way more fun than this one from a recent commemorative edition of the Irish Times). You can read O’Bryan’s thoughts here, although be warned – besides entertaining, they may well trigger a rethink of how you use social media: The Accessible Author – What now for fiction?
