Actually, yes it can. I have no clue what I would do on Twitter or why anyone would want to follow my tweets. Facebook, the blog, the website, and my writing I can understand. But what could I have to say in 140 characters or fewer that would be worth reading?
Speaking of reading, I've been working my way through a collection of Douglas Adams' major works, and having a blast doing so. I love his writing, and really, who in the 'verse wouldn't? Adams was a brilliant pioneer in the genres of Science Fiction, Humor, and Humorous Science Fiction. He's also inspirational in a way.
I'd like to share with you what I've learned from reading his works: dare to be ridiculous! This doesn't mean ignoring all the rules of writing but don't be afraid to go out on a limb and just be downright silly, but most of all creative. The whimsical ramblings of the creative mind can be brilliant. Without Douglas Adams and others like him, could there ever have been a Firefly? And where would we geeks be without Firefly? That's right, we'd be Firefly-less. And that would just be so sad.
Note: if you haven't seen Firefly, get thee to a website or rental site that carries it and be thou entertained. No thanks necessary. May the Browncoats be with you.
