I have been a committed Luddite for the vast majority of my adult life – but now – I find myself slipping inexorably (I’ve given up kicking and screaming) into the world of technology; specifically, social media and so forth. As a writer – albeit a late developing one – I now find myself with, nay needing, not only a WordPress account, but; Twitter, Facebook, and a BlogSpot.
It’s hard work, for me. I pine for pens and paper, telephones with a dial and that rings, properly, envelopes with letters – even if those letters are letters of refusal or commiseration on not getting published.
So here I am, pink, shiny and new; ready to be scuffed and scraped by electronic media as it whizzes past me at astonishing speed. I apologise in advance if I don’t keep up to date on here, I’m probably curled up in a corner clutching a lead pencil.
If you hear me scream, please lend a hand…I will be very grateful.
