Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Happy October! Great news… I can finally upload pictures to my posts again! I’m so excited! So today, I thought that I would share a picture of some Twitter activity that I had at the end of August. It was right before I started this blog, and then I had so much that I wanted to talk about here, I forgot to post about this.
I follow one of my favorite authors, Sarah Dessen, on Twitter. This particular day, I saw her tweet about her writing process, and I decided to reply to her. I had been having a really difficult time getting through a chapter in my novel, and I thought, this was what Twitter was for; people can connect to others in a way that wasn’t possible before. So I went for it. I figured she wouldn’t even read my tweet, much less respond to it. But not only did she read and respond to me, but she actually gave me some advice too! I was completely shocked!
I can only hope that some day I will be accomplished enough as an author that someone will be excited to write to me and have me respond to them through social media. It would be a dream come true to have someone look up to me the way that I look up to my favorite authors.
I’m always excited to talk to people through Twitter, so don’t hesitate to look me up and write to me! As always, I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
