I take my assignments seriously!

Part of the Blog Book Tours class that I'm taking involves creating a Twitter account and learning how to effectively network and promote in that format. So, I've been spending quite a lot of time playing with and thinking about Twitter in the last few days.

Last night? I dreamed about it.

I had the strangest dream last night in which I was walking around town and noticed that Twitter ID names were standing around, leaned up against street lights or trees, coummunity bicycle style. They were there for anyone to use who needed to send a Twitter message and wasn't at home to do it. It was so bizzare - the words were actually about the SIZE of a bicycle, and just leaning there, kind of like Sesame Street.

Since I brought it up anyway, I should introduce my Twitter and invite anyone who would like to, to follow me!

Ha! Very clever post, Elle. I know you're a committed Blogger, but dreaming is taking it to another level. You should be the group winner for highest commitment level!

Hi Elle,
Your dream cracked me up. I dreamt last night about book reviewers. A teeny little old man who smelled funny was about to share his review of my memoir when I woke up. Twitter lights big as bicycles. That's great.

Geesh -- and I thought my dreams were weird. Twitter IDs and little old men who smell funny are even better than a grizzly bear. Fun post.

Thanks for sharing your dreams. I often dream about work, most about what's on my todo list and how the hell I'll ever get it done.

That's when I know I'm taking it all much too seriously.

Enjoy your dreams.

That dream reminded me of this Twitter video... Now that you're a Twitterer, you'll find it hilarious!

I was reluctant to join Twitter but now LOVE it. It's honestly where I get so many of my ideas, and I've connected with lots of other writers. Glad to see you there!

Wow, I'm impressed! You're a really dedicated student to be thinking about blogging and tweeting even in your subconscious. That's great!

Great post, Elle. All I have to say is:

"Tweet Dreams!"

You guys are too funny! There is nothing like posting the absurd to bring out the absurd in everyone else!

I think you scratch a writer and you find the absurd lurking not far below. I have to admit they're seldom useful apart from telling me what's filling my head at any given time. I do find that I get solutions to problems once I awake, but not often within a dream.
