I think that blogs and Internet publishing are the new Punk Rock! Years ago people decided they were being in a band and that was that. The band's name was more important that the ability of the musicians.
We are currently going through a technological industrial revolution. The Internet is the best thing since sliced bread. All you need to do is tap those keys and press PUBLISH. You don't have to be Shakespeare to write. Writers are people who write!
I really believe in Community Arts - do you? Let's be like William Blake and write and paint, play instruments, grow vegetables, play Cricket and Football (or watch it anyway") and just be creative!
Not sure if William Blake played Cricket?
