I think this is actually a cool way to gain creative ideas but for ourselves and not social media. I take a lot of day trips here in Iowa (I know, how exciting) and I’ll come home with countless photos I snapped simply to give me story ideas.

I’ve never been much for social media but this past month I’ve been working on every platform in efforts to promote my work. Six weeks ago the thought of Quora as physically hurting my brain and now I’ve become obsessed. I’ve discovered I enjoy answering questions. I can see how social media can easily become addicted.

Thanks for sharing your perspective and outlook. It’s a reality check a lot of us need to hear.
