Twitter & 3-day novels

I'm now on twitter, @glendresser. Janine's been using it significantly and I've been constantly impressed by it, but it took a trip to the twitter headquarters in San Francisco (and their amazing cafeteria!) to finally get me off the fence. I plan to break in my account this weekend, tweeting about my 3-day novel experiences. Yes, I'm doing it again... although not officially entering the contest, just using it as motivation to get a first draft down for a young adult novel that I'm planning on. I've gone through the 3-day novel 3 times before, twice producing drafts that I could work on and revise into a longer novel, and once finishing with a manuscript that convinced me that a particular idea wasn't worth pursuing as a novel. That's one of the great advantages to the 3-day novel... you can spend a weekend and realize you don't want to pursue an idea any further, rather than spending months or a year getting to that point. Anyway, watch on twitter for updates.
