Last week I received a series of death threat tweets. They weren’t credible death threats in which there’s reason to fear action, but they have been weighing heavily on me and pushed me to think about the ways that toxic – and even not-toxic – social media drags me away from other kinds of writing.
Until my book is finished, then, I’m going to try to step back from social media except to announce when new pieces are published. I’m also putting the blog on hiatus until the book is finished.
Then I hope to come back full throttle.
