A Salute to #wschat

A Salute to #wschat

It's been three years
since Not Bob
introduced us to
the Twitter chat.
Many of us thought,
"What's that?"
Now, I can tell you
what it has become.
A "woohoo" when you
share good news.
Commiseration for
the rejection blues.
Laughter, especially
from the back of the class.
The option to wear or
not wear pants.
A chance to sit in
on author interviews.
Watching the same movie
and tweeting your review.
Time for us
to get together,
talk about writing,
learn to get better.
Happy Anniversary, #wschat!
Remember, we have
 the list if you need a name
for your cat (or band).

  4. I enjoyed your poem, Michelle. What a great way to pay tribute to our anniversary! One of these days I will make it to the chat. But you reminded me that I could do a hashtag search and follow later.

  5. Thanks, Romelle. I hope you can join a chat sometime soon. Remember, when you read through the feed, you're welcome to make comments and add to the conversation.

  6. Love the poem!

    The last couple years I've had trouble getting in on the chats due to work schedules but am gonna keep hope alive and see if I can attend more.

    1. Thanks, Kiril. We'd love to have you join us!
