How to Join Us
Here’s some tips that can help the chat go easier, and things I do on my laptop during the chat: (I don’t usually use my iPhone for the chat, though it’s doable.)
1. Open http://tweetchat.com/room/askawritingcoach. You’ll need to let it authorize with your Twitter account.
In this way you can see all posts just using our hashtag #askawritingcoach.
Tip: You don’t need to type #askawritingcoach each time. It’s already in there though you can’t see it when you type.
2. Open another browser window to your Twitter account and click on the tab “Notifications” (https://twitter.com/i/notifications).
In this way you can see if people are talking to you but forgot to use the hashtag #askawritingcoach.
3. Content: share writing tips, favorite writing-related books, ask questions, tag your friends! Please focus on fiction, unless other questions come up.
Let me know if you have any questions!
And please share about the chat on Twitter. (Click here to share on Twitter. You can edit the tweet.)
