I’ve met writers whose social life revo

I’ve met writers whose social life revolves around the writing scene. They attend conferences and workshops and frequent coffee shops where other writers congregate. They love the life as much as they love writing.
I’ve done a little of that. I belong to a writers’ organization and I used to be active in it. But I discovered that belonging to any social group while living in the forest isn’t an easy task and I decided to spend my time writing instead of driving back and forth to meetings.
I miss the companionship of those other writers because the warmth of actual meetings is wonderful. But I find that the internet is an efficient and easy way to keep connected. It’s not quite the same as face-to-face meetings but it allows me to know many, many more writers all over the world than I otherwise could.
And that’s wonderful.
