My writing group told me I need to get on social media so when the book I’m writing is published I’ll have a following of readers eager to read it. (Wow! Wouldn’t that be nice?)
It sounded reasonable. But I’m in my mid-80s. I’m not “into” social media. I socialize face-to-face or by telephone. And occasionally, by email. But Facebook? Or blogging?
Gulp! “OK, I’ll try.”
But I’m a s-l-o-w learner. I’ve managed to get into it and am writing something. (That’s the easy part — the writing, that is.)
Now I’m stuck. They said I needed a picture. I have a camera, but don’t know how to get the pictures from there to the computer. And I haven’t even learned how to take pictures with my “smart phone.” (The phone is smart, the user isn’t!)
“Oh, that’s not a problem. There are LOTS of free app with pictures and you can just select one that fits your story.
I found where the pictures are, but I don’t know how to get one from there to here.
I need stroke-by-stroke written out instructions I can refer to. Otherwise, here I am sitting stuck in a quandary of options — but what IS the next step?
Help arrived and I did get a picture selected and placed. Progress.
Here goes publishing — fingers crossed and a prayer on my lips.
