Quotes and tweets

Doing the quotes and tweets one evening.

Its been a long day. I have spent the past few hours on the computer doing all sorts of things. One of the last things I do before I retire from the computer is tweet. Today the theme was on the vision.  I have tried to play around with words to generate my own quotes I send out to friends and followers on Twitter. I also touched briefly on legacy.

When I generate my own quotes I generally come up with a theme I would like to focus on and try and play around with words.  The words need to have impact and it must not be someone else’s quote. I also try to avoid quotes I have done before. This is quite a challenge but it’s something I love. Some years ago I used to send short text messages to friends in the mornings. Blogging and sending tweets make it so much easier now.

Yesterday the theme on twitter was on the Journey. I thought the quotes I came up with were rather flat and long winded. Well today I try again! I always want to better what I have done the previous day.  Generally I come up with the themes when I get home and sit on the computer.

Sometimes this process of coming up with quotes can take a few minutes or even hours before I can come up with something reasonable.  Before I finalise quotes I will often look up meanings of words, expressions and idioms on the internet just to make sure I am on the right track.  The freedictionary and wikipedia are my favourites but I am always on the lookout for other sources of information as well. If I just can’t come up with anything original on the day, I look up other quotes on the internet.
