I got an email the other day from someone who wanted to know why I hadn’t linked to them on LinkedIn. This is the kind of thing that happens to me; the person is an engineer – awesome job, btw – but has no book affiliation. I am a reader and writer and so the people with whom I connect, are, for the most part, readers and writers, whether they’re the head of their Friends of the Library group, or they’re small press editors or copywriters for insurance companies. Readers. Writers. LinkedIn is for business purposes, I always thought. But, I was wrong.

“Why didn’t you friend me on LinkedIn?” he wanted to know.

“I’m your actual friend,” I argued. “How can you be mad about what happens on a computer?”

social media

to those who now “friend:”
where were you lot when I was
sidelined in high school?

fan mail

“I just think you’re cool.”
A writer can never have
Enough words like that

my many-colored ways

roses are red and
wallflowers are rainbow bright
but no one sees them
