If you would like to make your Facebook page more private here is a message that you can copy and post. Make sure you read this several times if you're like me or you might click the wrong thing when applying it to someone else.
all my FB friends, may I request you to please do something for me: I
want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. However, with the recent
changes in FB, the public can now see activities in any wall. This
happens when our friend hits "like" or "comment", automatically, their
friends would see our posts too. Unfortunately, we cannot change this
setting by ourselves because Facebook has configure...d it this way. So I
need your help. Only you can do this for me. PLEASE place your mouse
over my name above (do not click), a window will appear, now move the
mouse on “FRIENDS" (also without clicking), then down to "Settings",
click here and a list will appear. REMOVE the CHECK on "COMMENTS &
LIKE" by clicking on it. By doing this, my activity amongst my friends
and my family will no longer become public. Many thanks! Paste this on
your wall so your contacts would follow suit too, that is, if you care
about your privacy.
Another person posted a link to an interesting article that I thought you all may like to read. This is about Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church posted by a former Mormon. It's inflammatory, but I think important.
Now for a little writing news. I have recently learned that short stories are hot. We're talking e-books here. If you want to do something that will help readers find you as a writer, why not write short stories? 2,500 words, a little less, a little more. When I talked to my daughter about this she said everyone at work was talking about short stories and how they love them because their lives are so busy they can actually finish one. That encouraged me.
A good way to fine tune your short story writing skills is to get involved with a regular flash fiction post. I do Romantic Friday Writers, which is every other Friday. We are given a challenge and word count goal and must come up with an original story. I've learned so much and have so many new and wonderful friends.
