To think I know nothing of the modern world.

Here's how my brain works: I've spent months torqued with guilt over -- among countless other things -- how I haven't been blogging enough. "Soon," I promised myself, "the book shall be done and then oh! What blogging I shall do."

Because my inner voice sounds a little mannered.

And then the book got done, and then done again, and then a little more done and then finally it was done. And I was still only blogging once a week. The feeling of guilt rolled over me like an itchy Dacron sweater dipped in Nutella and yea verily how I suffered. So yesterday I'm feeling my guilt and insisting I write more often and wishing I had Nutella in the house when it occurs to me that I could Twitter.

[My mother reads this blog. My mother has no idea what I've gotten into now. So Mom, Twitter is a format wherein I can send messages of no more than 140 characters about what I am doing right now; I think we all understand it will frequently involve carbohydrates or impotently shouting at the cat. ]

So if you go to and type in Quinn Cummings, you'll find me.

I can't promise I'll be interesting, but I never promised that anyway.

Oh hurray! I am thrilled that you're now on Twitter. Welcome the 140 character fold.

Welcome to Twitter ... because, naturally, we all need MORE cyber-addictions.

(I'm "__Deb" on Twitter, by the way.)
