Yes, it's sad but true. I am completely out of love with Facebook. It can't ever take the place of AW.

In fact, I'd say it sucks the life out of someone. So, I'm back.

Yup, you heard it here first. I'm bacccck. I am determined to finish at least one project and that includes rewrites, synopsis and query writing and looking for an agent.

This is who I am. A writer. Time I got over trying to fight it. :D

Whose with me?

LOL, funny you should mention this...I just left FB with a sigh of frustration and came "over here" to AW for some relief!

Welcome back.

I don't like FB. I wanted to delete it.

But then I move to another country and was trying to figure out a way to keep people up to date with what is happening in my life.

I know they won't read my blog, at least not the casual friends. I could upload pictures to Flickr and then share them via several messaging apps etc. and finally I sighed and admitted FB is easiest for that.

So, I'm back on there.

At least for updates about my life.

I still don't like it though.

Looking at your post count, do you think being on AW can really help you accomplish that? :D I'm almost where I need to ask for a temporary ban so I can get back to work :tongue

Anyway, I'm a relative n00b on here. Nice to meet you. And yes, it is invariably easier and better for peace of mind not to fight something.

Hello, sweetheart. It's been a long time. Why...I'm not sure...um...have we met?


Welcome back, Lady! Nice to see you here.Hello, my lady! It's nice to be seen here.


Hi Cassie! Don't let Alley scare you, they declawed him. :DThey did what? Ohhhh...no no no...poor kitty. ;)


Next we're going after the fangs.

*never saw the appeal of FB in the first place* erm...Alleycat with no claws and no fangs? I don't think so. ;)

Oh Shush you. That was back in the day when I went to the rep thread and then Cassiopeia's House of Recovery for Rep Addicts and all that. ;)

I realized last night that I've been wasting time trying to form relationships with other writers on Facebook when I could have been here. My backside is a bit sore this morning from kicking myself.

Glad I'm not the only one!

Facebook has become a distasteful necessity for me. I don't really enjoy going there, but feel I must in order to see what's going on with people. Don't enjoy it all anymore. But I've become kind of addicted to AW and Goodreads!

Glad I'm not the only one!I'm pretty sure I thought it would be a way to do that too. Now it's just a way for me and my family to post photos. Of which I NEVER post pictures of myself. :)

I don't like FB. Never liked FB. I have a page, but I don't like it. I never go look at it. My wife on the other hand FBs all the time. I prefer it here.

Welcome back! Have a seat and a nice cup of tea.

Facebook is boring; it's only gotten more exciting since I added some AW friends, but even on FB people don't have lengthy conversations like we can have here! FB is for 'Lol', 'Cool pic', 'Thumbs up', and AW is for 5 page responses on our writing! That's much more awesome than one word replies or 'likes' on facebook!

Welcome back, though I'm sure we've never met. Hello!

Good to see you again Cassiopeia.

Maybe walking away from FB will be a new spiritual rite of passage, where one day we fix our jaws, squint hard like Josie Whales, and dare FB to try and pull us back!

Ironic that its draw is social enhancement, but in actuality can become a social suicide. It's a lot like seriously overdosing on candy.

I would definitely turn to it for possible business enhancements, however, but even then I'd treat it like a modern day billboard that needs changing once in a while lest people stop liking you. Hmm... that's more like a diaper than a billboard! :D

FB is boring.

I'm sorry you think so. I guess I wasn't interesting enough. But just because you came here, its still the same boring me.

And I still like FB. Not sure why people think it needs to be a one or the other and they can't enjoy both AW and FB.

I'm a bit confused why everyone is bad mouthing FB? Its a social media that means some are socially inept or boring or just plain ignorant. Then there are groups who are wonderful and share a lot. I met my publisher there and am getting my MS traditionally published so I can't think too bad about FB. Since I haven't been here before, why is AW better? Please tell me how this site works.

If I might make a suggestion...why don't you create a thread with that very question or start a thread on how you managed to meet your publisher on FB. :) That would be a great help.

This is in the Office Party section of AW and as such is meant to be a fun thread.

Welcome to AW, btw.

I'm wondering when Office Party took on such a serious tone! Seriously people...you're focusing on the WRONG part of my title...It's about ME.
