One of the things I love about online communities is that you can share coffee with someone who lives hundreds of miles away, or maybe thousands, or even on the other side of the planet.
Okay, maybe we can’t actually share the coffee, but we can share our thoughts and ideas and experiences. We take it for granted because we do it every day, but when Roy and I get an email or a FB message from someone in Malaysia or India who likes our books, or when I talk craft ideas with authors in Australia and Belgium, it still thrills me to think people around the globe can form bonds in this way.
What got me thinking about this was the release of WINTER WONDERLAND, the first in a series of WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, produced by two of my fave online girlfriends, D.D. Scott and Tonya Kappes, whose drive, creativity and generosity of spirit have drawn together an international community of writers at their WG2E grog.
Have you got friends across the planet who seem as if they live next door?
To celebrate the anthology release I want to share this amazing video by Kien Lam. (which I discovered on Sophia Chang’s blog)
