…Authors, when yeez feel alone in the crowd, just tap the internet button…

…most writers are familiar with that ‘detached-from-the-rest-of-the-WURLD’ feeling… it creeps up on yeez sum’times when ye’re scribbling away solo in yer virtual candle-lit garret… it’s a sensation that becomes almost comfortable, sculpting away at yer latest wee literary masterpiece… other times, well, it’s that ol’ ‘quill-scraper-against-the-universe’ syndrome… comes now the SOSYAL NETWURKS and hey, presto!… instant companionship at yer laptop fingertips… where else does any profession, and I mean ANY profession, get such limitless support and unconditional LUV from its membership?… the fabulous writing family diaspora is there 24/7, every day of the year… the sharing is open, it’s immense, it’s free, and it’s non-competitive… when I was a young lad growing up in Glasgow, there were times when I wanted, nay needed, the fellowship of nob’dy else but myself… the loneliness of the long-distance urchin, I suppose… that kinda instilled a measure of self-reliance… a belief that anything could be achieved if yeez set yer mind to it… but how much better it has become by marrying that approach to the countless friendships born on the Web… with no exceptions, I’ve discovered there are no airs and graces to be pampered on here… if people don’t like yeez, they simply tap the ‘unfriend’ button, and both of yeez are well-served by the process…


…I still like my own space… mentally, physically, aye, even spiritually, and at my vintage, I can afford to accommodate all of that with selfish pleasure… when I cease to indulge my spells of secluded hermitage, yeez are all there for me, and for each other… Authors, when yeez feel alone in the crowd, just tap the internet button… what a wunnerful group yeez are, Lads and Lassies of Blog Land… thanks for being there… see yeez later…LUV YEEZ!

  2. You’ve hit the nail on the head there Seumas. I have always loved my own space; time alone to do what I want, when I want to do it. And I love this community where one can enjoy the company of fellow writers when I want; we can all share as much or as little as we like. It’s good.

  5. All that you say is true, Seumas. I’m also one who is fine alone, but sometimes likes to connect with those I have something in common with. 🙂
