Introducing Ask Annie

Hey guys! Just a quick announcement. On Saturday, at the end of my latest Twitter post for Writer Unboxed, I introduced a new feature we’ll be trying out: Ask Annie. (That’s me!)

My column will still be every other month, it will still be on Writer Unboxed, and it will still be about Twitter for writers. The difference is that instead of having one topic of my choosing that I discuss in depth, I’ll be fielding a few questions from interested parties each time. So — you guessed it — I’m looking for questions!

To make submitting to Ask Annie easier, I’ve created this form. The only required fields are the question itself and a statement as to whether or not you want it to be attributed to you. In other words, there’s a completely anonymous option in this form; I won’t even see who it’s from unless you want me to. But if you would like your question attributed to you, there are optional fields for your name, Twitter handle, and website. In that case, if I choose your question to answer in the column, everyone will see that it was your question (which is nice exposure).

I’m really excited about this new feature, and I’m so grateful to Therese Walsh for being flexible and continuing to include me in the amazing Writer Unboxed team. Not to mention the logo her super-talented kiddo whipped up for us! Seriously, I’m a smitten kitten; check out the graphic at the top of the Ask Annie page.

I have a feeling this will be a great new direction for the column. If you’re a writer on Twitter (or considering joining), I encourage you to check out all of my past posts for etiquette tips, best practices, how-tos, and more. And if you’re already a reader, be sure to stop by my latest post: “The 10 Most Generic Tweets of All Time.” It’s great fun, and as always at Writer Unboxed, there’s pure gold in the comments. 🙂

And finally, send me your questions!! I can’t wait to read and answer them over at Writer Unboxed. (My first Ask Annie post will be March 14th, but there’s no deadline for these since it’ll be an ongoing feature.) I hope you all have a great week,
