It’s nice when I remember to go and read some of my readers – it is always a pleasant surprise to be followed by such quality writers. I spend a lot of time reading established authors (Mary Shelley) this week, but to find an independent author who shines is like being part of a secret club.

I have also been keeping up reading Warren Ellis – he started a project called where he writes at least a couple of hundred words a day – it’s proving interesting. He also sends out a newsletter that I find essential reading, and has a tumblr he call the most boring tumblr in the world but which I find fascinating. When someone lets you see behind the curtain and shows you some of the ingredients that go into the work they produce, it can be very inspiring. Ellis has always been very generous at sharing in this way, and though the community has now is perhaps not quite so tightly knit, it is still there. There are artists and writers and other creatives who look to him for sparks, jumping off points, and the regular creative conversation he is having with the world at large.

To be connected to these things is great, and provides a lot of fuel. I am pretty self sufficient, but these links to others are a very necessary part of my creative life, and I wouldn’t lose them for anything. Facebook offers some little wonders. Twitter throws up the occasional diamond. WordPress is a very cool “little enclave” where being a poet and a writer still makes a lot of sense (at least to me). To recreate something like that in real life, like I had once before, would be fantastic.
