Anne Lamott on social media

Had the pleasure of seeing Anne Lamott in Winnetka, IL last night, thanks to The Book Stall and Women's Exchange. An 'intimate group' of 300 people packed the auditorium and were rewarded with an entertaining evening of Anne reading from and talking about her books, sand about writing, grace, and God.

Thought you might like to know her view on Twitter. For all the people who think they don't have time to use it, she says:

"It's called Twitter, not Treatise. It takes about a minute!"

Anne also loves the intimacy of it and says she finds the 140 character limit is great writing practice. She also said social media doesn't take anything away from her writing time. "Its part of my real writing."

Her two newest books are Some Assembly Required,  and Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers,
