I joined Jottify.com in October last year. In that time, I’ve been Editor’s Choice, and had my novel published in their magazine.
But better than all this? I’ve made so many new friends. I swear we were all meant to meet somehow. Luckily it was via the medium of Jottify, where we’ve been sharing our work and receiving the kind of feedback that just isn’t possible from those who aren’t writers as well.
We’ve shared games, movies, music (recently, a song in Slovakian, a language I don’t understand a word of). Funny to think that all of these recommendations have been spot on. How can you know someone over the Internet? I have no idea. But we’ve all done a pretty bang on job, I think.
I kinda want to petition Jottify to have a get together somewhere – even if some of us have to attend via Skype (students don’t earn enough for plane tickets, apparently *sigh*).
I just think that if we were all to meet, it would be… amazing. An event worth attending, and one that would be absolutely unforgettable.
Those people you meet… who were your best friends in a past life.
