Well yes, I think it does.
There's a writer I know, virtually. Lizy lives in Tenerife and she's an unpublished novelist. She's had loads of interest in her work, but because of where she lives, things just haven't happened. A writer needs to be available for publicity - radio interviews, that kind of thing. So rather than sign her up, Lizy is being declined.
By chance I came across a couple of blogs that also touched on the ex-pat writer world and I passed them on.
So what's this about? Nothing really - other than to say that the internet, blogs and the world in general is a very small place.
Now blog off and let me get some work done!
