What I’ve Got so Far

It’s been four days and I’m not fitting into my twitter skin just yet. I’m not sure if I should tweet in the first person: “I wish CNN would stop presenting useless stories about how germs spread.” Or the third person: “SamaraOShea wishes CNN would stop presenting useless stories about how germs spread.”

Want to hear something strange? I prefer writing in the third person. What in the world does that say about me?! Perhaps its because Facebook status updates are usually written in the third person, and I do enjoy journaling occasionally in the third person. It took me a while before I felt comfortable updating my Facebook status. I’d always post something and then get self conscious and take it down moments later. THIS from a girl who writes openly about her sex life in both of her books. It’s because a book isn’t written in real time. First it’s written a while after the fact, and then it’s published even further after the fact. Status updates and tweets are published in real time, which makes me feel more vulnerable—even if the comments are fairly innocuous.

Ah well, I’m getting my feet wet slowly. Here’s what I have thus far:
