Why have I suddenly become popular? Six people have decided to follow me on Twitter in the last two days (seven if you count Christmas Eve). As far as I know, I haven't done anything to warrant this attention and some of the followers seem to have occupations far removed from my writing sphere. Has anyone else found a multitude (six is a multitude for me) of followers on their heels? Should I be excited ... or worried?

I recently had a lot of people find me on Facebook and now we're chatting. It's great.

Twitter is super random. I think sometimes they follow people so they'll follow back so it looks like they have lots of people. I've had a couple of small time actors and musicians follow me out of they blue.

To get the creative juices flowing constantly, I work on an online comic on another site when I'm not writing. I started with about 10 followers and then shot up to 92 in one year. I'm not popular by any means but it is nice to see that people like what I do, even if they don't comment on my work all the time.

I do want to be popular with my novels someday but not just for money reasons. Childhood dream was to use writing to make others smile; more people know my books, more people are smiling when they read them.

I find spoken word products (but what I mean by this are NOT audio books) somewhat creativity-inspiring and relaxing at the same time. Stage plays. Poems. Skits and variety. Comedy. Actually there's a lot of stuff which isn't ostensibly designed for spoken word but which I record myself and make it into spoken word. Its an alternative to music and the stream of words stimulates my own word-flow.
