Friday Fun: Pandora


Do you know about Pandora? I’m not talking about the mythical box which contained all the evils of the world. I’m referring to the free internet radio station Pandora.com. It’s a personalized internet radio service that helps you find new music based on your old and current favorites. And I love to listen to it when I write. I have different stations for different moods, so it’s easy to slip into the zone.

Extra bit of fun. I recently discovered Gena Showalter. She writes an adult paranormal romance series (Lords of the Underworld) based on immortals possessed with demons from Pandora’s Box (the mythical one) and it’s an awesome series. I admire her skill and devour her books.

Do you listen to music when you write? Are you already familiar with Pandora.com? 

Friday Fun: Do you Tweet?


Kind of late for a Friday Fun post, but it’s technically still Friday in my time zone. I usually post a fun picture. This week I’m posting about a fun, new thing I learned thanks to one of my critique partners Tangynt. Even though most of you are probably already familiar with this, I’m sure you’ll agree it deserves its spot on the Friday Fun list. What am I talking about?

TweetChat. I’ve had a Twitter account for a little over a year. To be honest, I didn’t and still don’t use it to its full potential. Part of the reason is I’m still learning how it works. I recently learned about hashtags, which are a way to identify specific topics. So, you can imagine how excited I was to learn about a site where I can put in the hashtags I’m interested in like #amwriting, #amreading, or #paranormal and pull up conversations on the topic. It’s a great way to meet new tweeps with like interest.

How do you use Twitter? Any tips? Any suggestions?
