STATUS: Happy Jig. Rules of Attraction on NYT for third week in a row.
What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? DELICATE by Damien Rice
It goes in spats but invariably once a month, I get a lovely invitation from a writer to Link In or join as a Facebook friend.
This is the nature of useful social networks but because of the nature of this job, I can’t really accept.
If I accepted one invitation, I’d have to accept all invitations. That would only be fair, and I don’t really want to open that can of worms!
My rule is that I only say yes to close friends and family, my clients, editors, and/or other industry people I know personally. Keeping it simple.
All others, I will decline with a polite note but thanks for thinking of me.
