  1. YAY!! You're going to meet Jess! I am so jealous. She's one of the first peeps I met online, after I started my blog.

  2. I don't know a single writer in real life, so I would be completely alone without the internet. Have fun with Jess - so jealous!

  3. Actually I already got to see her, and it was fantastic! It's quite the experience to meet people in person you've chatted with online. I highly recommend it wherever possible.

  4. Could I live without the internet? Yeah. But would I WANT to? Noooo! Way too many awesome people I've met online. My writing life flourished getting to me CPs and beta readers online.

  5. I also love the connections I have made through blogging. It's quite amazing that we get to communicate with people all over the world. Unfortunately, I have yet to meet anyone in person.

  6. I live in Mexico, and I could NOT live without the Internet. Submitting to agents and publishers, or doing edits when I finally do sign with snail mail would be impossible. And I have found a group of writers here.

  7. It's great to hear I'm not the only one! Even more people to connect with. Awesome.
