It Happened on Twitter
Sometimes life throws you a good curveball.
Last week an online friend suggested I get on Twitter. I did so.
Next day I filled in the (mini-) profile in preparation for active participation and Following others.
Day after that, I decided to add "Aspiring author" to my (mini-) profile. It's true.
Checked "Follow" on 3 known acquaintances, 2 celebs, and a handful of science/regular news sources.
Three hours later, I decided to Follow a very famous/successful author and film-maker of 25 years (name will go unmentioned).
Ten minutes later (left home office, went for a snack) returned to computer. Twitter notifying me I've got a new Follower.
It's that very famous author/film-maker!!
I was floored, absolutely stunned; couldn't think straight for a good minute.
And yes, it is him. He's got nearly 36,000 Followers, 556 of which he also Follows; so I'm one of the lucky few. Apparently curious as to my writing/creative efforts.
I didn't foresee ANY celebrity co-Following me. Nor posting anything about my writing endeavors (which I'm keeping to a minimum).
Well. I'm still sort of dazed by it, lol!
I'll tell you in the next life, when we are both cats.
Don't let your reality checks bounce. ~Me
