Good blog thanks Nola. I am enjoying dipping into the anthology and have read all three by CWD and enjoyed them I do identify with your sentiments expressed in the story and in your post above. I do think we've lost something in the process of 'getting faster and smarter', a lot, but then again imagine writing a novel without a computer!
Glad you enjoyed our stories, Jeanette. I wrote first novel by hand - at first on any bit of paper I could get my hands on, including the back of envelopes, and the notepads donated by pharmaceutical companies (in between patients). Eventually I wrote it all out longhand and a kind friend typed it into the computer for me. I'm thankful for word processors these days - but glad we are not restricted to 100 words :)
Though Jenny, I've heard of novels being serialised as tweets of 140 characters. Not sure how many fantasy epics would be among them though :)
Thanks for that, Jeanette. I'm glad you're enjoying it. And there certainly are pros and cons of our faster world. Back in my Uni days, I typed all of my assignments on an old typewriter. When I started my first full-time job in 1989, we didn't have email or personal computers. Hard to believe. I love the convenience we have now, but I do miss the slower pace of life and letters in the regular mail. Appreciate your comments.
