Finally, everything's sorted out. Caught up on chores, sent out all the stories that had been rejected in my absence, researched everything I'd wanted to look into on getting back, touched in with all my friends. Going to be diving back into writing today, probably starting with a final rewrite of "Tongue-Tied". A little nervous (what if my muse declined to come home with me?) but mostly eagerly anticipating it. The one thing I missed in Britain was writing. And every time I popped into a book store I'd rummage through the YA section with constant thoughts of I could write this! ;)

You know, I've never had very many artistic people around me. My close friends aren't even big readers. My dad has his occasional photography habit, but otherwise... I didn't think about it that much before, because I was used to it, and, well, because I'm the sort of person who really enjoys her alone time. But having met Talia, and had those talks with someone as involved in her art as I am in my writing (and also, though having less time, with Ludi and Sally), I know what I'm missing now. It's great talking to people on-line, but dammit it's just not half as real as when you're face to face.

There's a simple answer here. You all need to move to Toronto.

No? Well, it was worth a try. :D

I've been looking through the city's literary newsletter and on-line--who knew there were so many open readings and performance events going on, for free!? (Free is good when you've just spent far too much money overseas. ;)) So I will start venturing forth, soaking up some creative atmosphere, and perhaps even meeting some people. Should be interesting, if nothing else. Seek and ye shall find?

We'll see.

Boy do I know how you feel. I wish I lived near more artisitc, creative friends myself. I think everyone should just move to one city. :D Toronto sounds good to me.

I'm sure you can find people to meet and talk to. They're just hiding somewhere. ^^

Heh. Well, you're welcome to move here. Then at least there'd be two of us. ;)

Though seriously, if you ever feel the urge to visit Canada, I'm often available to provide free tours and semi-intellectual conversation (and potentially, after buttering the 'rents, free accomodation). :D You'd just have to give me a shout.

Oh believe me, I would if I could drive. ^^;;

*chuckles* That would be great. I'd love to do that at some point. I've never been to anywhere in Canada besides Niagra Falls and I'd love to see Toronto.
