If there were no internet how would you get your writing out there to the reading world?
I just thought of how terrible it would be if I had no internet, no computer to use to write with and how yukky it would actually be. I guess I would do it the old fashioned way.
You'd do it the way we all did it 30 years ago, Diane -- type out a perfect copy, with a perfect cover letter, stick it in a perfect envelope with SASE and mail it. Wait 6 months, and hopefully receive an acceptance letter at the end. That system was a crazymaker and I'm glad it's over. My mailman thought I was stalking him lol!
Sure enough, we'd be doing what mollymeadows says -- using the mailman! Matter of fact, I still use him...for mailing! The Internet's not everything, and it's made it easier for more bad writers to gain easy publication. New invention is generally a win-loss situation.
