Beyonce and Marilyn Monroe

For a writer just coming out of obscurity, how do you know you're starting to make a dent in the public mind? When you utter a whisper, how do you even know someone is listening? Well, in my case, the answer is this: you know it when Beyonce and Marilyn Monroe start following you on Twitter! How cool is that! (And don't even bother hinting that Marilyn is no longer among us--she lives on!)

Look, this is what I find when I follow them back: both of these amazing divas have wise and poignant thoughts, which they express with the brevity necessary for Twitter communication.
