I've been here for a week and I have to thank you, Scott, for these amazing forums. I haven't joined many in the past. When I do, sometimes, they are lacking in a diverse group of people, ages and also interests. Some smart conversing, some light chit chatting. Also, such a great deal of respect for others here. What I love about this forum is you have such a great mix of brilliant individuals. Where topics range from books, to writing. I stumbled on it and found a wonderful place.
Months ago, I started writing for an Arts Blog here in Sarasota. In between, painting. . . I started writing again. It's a blog and we get lots of exposure. Everything from the theater, gallery events, orchestra, ballet. I interviewed those who I worked with in television production (set design), Sound design on Broadway, Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs on his paintings, Design in packaging, etc. I recently decided, there was a need for articles on writing (interviewing playwrights, etc) discussion of literature, and books. We get lots of hits locally, as well as nationally. I would love to include this forum in an article I do later, if that's okay with you. If and when I do, I will make sure to send you the link or post. I better check with Scott, as I am sensitive here and don't want it to be spam.
It's been great as I can write on topics I have had experience in over many years in the arts. Especially now, for me as I want to showcase reading. My next one may be on Literacy Programs (including one in Sarasota).
