Focusing on social media
It's always a pleasure to go along to the monthly Focus Group meetings where we discuss a particular skill or aspect of writing. This time it wasn't characterisation or structure or pace, but something else we all need to know how to navigate - social media, a necessity for writers these days. The youngest members among us were the most clued up, of course, and brought us all up to speed on what we needed to know, extending our vocabulary with new definitions given to established words: tags, posts, newsfeed, cookies, scroll, chat, forum, like, viral, tweet, snaps, trolls, etc., etc.
