The WordCount Last Wednesday writer chat moves up a week because of Christmas and takes place today, Dec. 19, at 10 a.m. Pacific time.
For this year-end edition, we’ll analyze how we did in 2012 and plan for the New Year. Use #wclw to follow along.
The Year in Review
For the chat, we’ll start by introducing ourselves and answers some pre-set questions, then wrap up with any other questions, tips or advice you want to share.
Here are the questions:
- What grade would you give your freelance writing business in 2012: E for excellent, S for satisfactory, or N for needs improvement?
- Was your income higher in 2012 than in 2011, and why or why not?
- What was the high point of your freelance year?
- What was the low point of your freelance year?
- What goals have you set for yourself for 2013?
- What will you do differently next year?
How to Join the #wclw Writer Chat
To join the #wclw writer chat, log onto Twitter account and use the hashtag #wclw to follow tweets related to the chat.
Although it’s possible to use the standard Twitter interface , you might find it easier using a Twitter application such as TweetGrid, TweetChat or HootSuite. Of those three, my favorite is TweetChat, which you can log into using your Twitter account.
You might want to alert followers that you’ll be tweeting more than usual during the chat, and suggest they use Muuter.com to temporarily mute your tweets if they don’t want to tune into the conversation.
If you can’t join us, look for a complete transcript of the chat on Wednesday afternoon.
