I was thinking this morning about one of the best things about writing today is the ability to communicate with people freely from around the world. Sure, we have had phone systems in place for about a century, but the internet has made communication free and easy. The ability that we have to read the works of someone working out of their home in say, England or Ireland and then being able to correspond with them personally is amazing.
I have written with people from Russia, Australia, England, Sweden in the last couple of months and it's as if they were across the street from me. It's a real benefit that opens our writing market to include countries across the world. Think about that when you write and realize it's not just other Americans reading your work.
Who are you corresponding with from other countries?
