YouWriteOn and a whole new world!

I have been very lax of late with writing blogs; I think it has been over a month now! So I thought it was about time I wrote one.

Since the last entry, I have been extremely busy with writing and all the usual, and unusual, day-to-day stuff, and most of all the world has opened up to me. Since becoming a member of YouWriteOn I have been in contact with people from all over the world, and have made a lovely new friend too. It is a lot like the old days when we had pen friends, usually instigated by the school, only better, as you don't have to wait for letters by air mail. Ah the wonders of modern technology!

I have been truly amazed at how much I have learned from others on the site, we are all at varying stages with our writing abilities, but everyone has something to contribute in one way or another. It helps that there is such a high membership of excellent writers to impart their wisdom.

Aside from learning new aspects of the craft, there is the feeling of not being alone. As every writer knows how solitary the life is, so it is nice to share ones frustrations, and up's and down's with people who know exactly how you feel.
