Boy, the new 1200 x 600 header playground for Twitter accounts has been a blast to play with over the past week. I finished up the last of my accounts on Thursday night and have everything all installed. This is a reduced size copy of the @HoarseMan header. To see what all of the pictures are, just click on the image to see the full size annotated picture.

Half size image of HoarseMan Twitter Header – click to see the annotated full size version.

All eleven headers for the the ChaliceMedia Twitter Accounts will be up on the ChaliceMedia Blog and the ChaliceMedia Facebook page over next several days.  IMPORTANT! The ChaliceMedia Facebook page has been in a limited content R&D stage since I laid out the first version. It’s never been promoted so the only follower you’ll find there is HoarseMan. If the page has any interest for you, please click the like button and forward it to some friends. There will be much more coming up over the next few months.

Seeya,

Good friend Mark Stevens (Antler Dust, Buried by the Roan) had a great post on Colorado Authors League about the benefits of writing by hand [translation: with paper or a similar material and a pen, #2 Ticonderoga pencil, Sharpie, etc. — GEEK ALERT: NO, repeat NO, electronics are involved.]

I’ve tried it. I really enjoyed Anne Randolph‘s Naked Writing workshop (not for the reason’s you might think) because it was all done by hand [translation: MY version of “by hand” is with an iPad notes app and the tip of my finger.] It’s an amazing way to … wait for it … get in touch with the words flowing from your brain.

Before we go further I need to interject that as a boy I wanted to become a doctor… Was it for the love of my fellow man? No. Was it for the prestige of being a physician? No. Was if for … the money. Heaven’s NO.

It was because every doctor I had ever known had HANDWRITING JUST LIKE MINE!
