Thanks to all of you for tonight’s #wpfchat! It was a great experiment — hope you got something useful out of it.
#wpfchat For those of you who ditched the original chat room… go back and leave a word of encouragement to those who didn’t come through.
#wpfchat Twitter can help you find new markets for writing, too.
#wpfchat Any last tips? Here’s one: search for/use the hashtag of a con you’re attending!
@NicolePeeler LOL! Thank you for helping out with tonight’s tweet. I’d be lost in acting IT officer.
@NicolePeeler See what you did to @moodymeow? That tweet is permanent record, yo.
#wpfchat Final discussion point: “Ask a question and get an answer from us!”
#wpfchat NEW TOPIC. Discuss: “Pitfalls of twitter in relation to your writing/career?”
#wpfchat please see if you can retweet others in our original chatroom who aren’t making it to the twitterchat… maybe that will help?
#wpfchat Discuss: “What are some clever uses for twitter that authors can employ?”
#wpfchat Discuss: “What use is twitter for a writer?”
I see a lot of familiar faces here at #wpfchat
Hello WPFers! #wpfchat
Hey @heidirubymiller/seton-hill-writers list — prepare to be referenced in tonight’s chat! We’ll use hashtag #wpfchat

@CherylMorgan …So no word progs for ipad for me; I just use text editor and paste into word on my home machine.
@CherylMorgan I don’t like ANY of the word doc editors for ipad right now. Pages is least harmful, but it can ruin footnotes/formats.
