There was a comment on yesterday’s post that I will share with you.
So, has social media made us become reclusive or is that just an excuse we are using? Since I started blogging and writing I have met so many people on FaceBook who I now regard as friends even though we have never met you know a lot about their lives and writing. I have never known a group of people so friendly and helpful as writers but! Is that because most writers are reclusive and spend a lot of time on their own working?
I personally think now that social media keeps us in the loop and it is a nice escape from our work in progress during the day and refreshes our thoughts. You just have to make sure your not spending more time on FaceBook than you are writing. I think the Internet is a wonderful thing as you can find out or see anything in the world so maybe that was the beginning of our enforced isolation. We don’t need to go out anymore for anything, we can even Facetime the children and grandchildren. Our pyjamas can be our clothes, food is delivered and our hairdresser and beautician will all come to us.
I will still have to go out for the coffee cake and coffee though but I guess when the demand rises it will be delivered!
You can’t beat sitting by the sea watching the sunset with a glass of wine, so maybe we will have to go out for some things. We all need a holiday to escape from our homes and to give us the inspiration and ideas for the stories we write. Happy weekend everyone x
