F is for Foreword

Standard

FThey say that for every promotional tweet you send, you have to send nine boring ones that aren’t about self-promotion.

I think I’m going to see what happens if you reverse that ratio.

OH! The anthology! The child I wanted to leave at the fire station but ended up letting it live rent-free in the garage. Today’s tidbit is about the Foreword, since foreword starts with “F.”

I thought it would be a great idea to write about the foreword for today’s letter until I realized that there isn’t much to write. I mean, I can tell you who wrote it (Kate Hopper.) And I can tell you that she edited our pieces and helped us find the deeper stories within our essays. And that she’s the perfect person for this job because her other job (besides being a wonderful writer) is helping women (mothers) tell their stories. Who better to write the foreword to our stories?

But once I started writing I realized that there’s not much you can say about a foreword. It basically just tells you nice stuff about the book and the people who wrote it and then tells you that you should read it and find out for yourself. Kate’s foreword is no exception. So what should I say?

That Kate said some nice stuff about us and wants you read our book?

Ohhhhhhhhh… this is going to be a long month.

  1. Stopping by on the 7th day of the #Challenge. Congratulations on a well presented blog and content. The content so far for #AtoZ of interest to this fellow writer. Thanks! If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening and related topics this month. Stop by.

  2. They never said you should write nine boring tweets for every self-promotional one, but nine tweets promoting other writers and being a genuine person online, instead of a link vending machine.

    • I think that’s so key, Veronica. Being authentic in your online presence and knowing that tweets/social media, it’s all communication. And like any good conversation, it’s never just about you. Nice to see you here!
