Coming Soon: Hashtag #Heartbreak – Tales from the Twitterverse

A social media consultant finds more than she bargained for in the age of new media and explains her love-hate relationship with twitter in the aftermath of a failed relationship. 

photo (24)This is very much a work in progress, inspired by recent events. The names of course will be changed for liability purposes (not necessarily to protect the innocent) but for the most part, the story will mirror real life (again). Those who know me and the other person involved in what I hope will be a simultaneously funny, touching, sad and hopeful drama (possibly an ongoing serial, I haven’t yet decided) will recognize the living, breathing inspirations for the two main characters. That’s fine with me. Perhaps being a secret for so long should have been a wake-up call.

Consider it a cautionary tale for the 21st century, fraught with real human emotion, lots of drama and plenty of baggage (mainly on the part of the male protagonist I’ve dubbed Zigmund) behind the loving tweets, IMs, emails and text messages (yes, I have them all, plus photos). I’ve got a strong feeling way too many people will be able to relate — which means I definitely must write it!

Be careful who you trust in the twitterverse.

Thank you, Cherry Tigris!

The beautiful and inspiring author/artist Cherry Tigris has generously included me in her blog in a section entitled, Fuel:

Why Daria?

Of course her book Water Signs reveals her hopeful nature, but what I find truly unique about this principled champion of good intentions is her gutsy delivery and the choices she has made to make her perspective her LIFE. She isn’t willing to bend to what doesn’t seem right to her. Because of this commitment to greatness, I have found the strength and vision to aspire to the same.

While we all have our own way of speaking our truth, there are only a few that do so with as much fever.

Love you Daria DiGiovanni!

Love you back, Cherry! And thank you for including me.

If you’re unfamiliar with Cherry or her work, I originally interviewed her on Writestream back in the spring of 2013 about her haunting memoir of child abuse, Toilet Paper People. This fall, Cherry will release an audio version of the book and returns to Writestream on Tuesday, September 2 to discuss. I’ll have a post up soon, but in the meantime, visit Cherry’s blog to learn more about this incredibly brave, strong and talented woman.
