A Good Twitter Night

So, last night was a good night on Twitter

Aimee Mann favorites one of my tweets, again!

It’s so cool that today we really have a shot at interacting with our heroes. I count song-writers, only the best song-writers, in the same vein as novelists. To me, song-writers are akin to flash-fiction writers, and good flash is just as powerful as any novel. Aimee Mann is one of my top six writer heroes, her use of craft is beautiful. Her words make me want to push my craft as far as I possibly can, then just a little further. Many of her words are etched into my skin, they’re always with me, they’re that important to me.

I’ve met Aimee in person once, and she was totally kind, totally, just, real. I’ve also gotten to tweet with her a bunch of times, she remembered me from seven years ago, she’s always absolutely nice, and three times now… she has favorited something I wrote! I swear, each time is so exciting, I could just fall over.

Yes, I’m a nerd.

    Hi Michael, it is too cool that you are able to connect with such an important hero in your life. Her words stir something up in you and create an emotional bond that is so important to feel for all of us.

    Just realize that your words are just as important. Many of us that follow you view you as a hero as well and enjoy the connection we feel with you. We enjoy reading your posts and therefore you cannot (should not) abandon your blog as you have suggested many times.

    Thanks for being you.
