Writing has always been a rather reclusive task. I'll admit to holing up in a corner of my house with some tea or coffee and writing into the dead of night. I mean, it may or may not be 3:35am at the moment. You get my drift. Writing is usually a lonesome job.
But, it doesn't have to be. Rewind about a month ago to a time when i first discovered something called streaming. The internet has made it to where what used to be cumbersome is now quite easy, and that includes sharing live content. Streaming is like having your own live, cable show. Most of the time, people stream gameplay. I still do, but I'd noticed that there were a large number of artists also streaming themselves drawing. One thing lead to another, and I thought, well, writing is kind of an art, too.
I searched for a writer, and bang, I found one. Well, not just one. I found a bunch of writers. We all hopped in this author's channel while she worked on her current WIP right in front of our eyes and chatted about our stories and NaNo. It was beautiful, and I want to try it, too.
So, later today, you can find me on my Twitch channel live streaming as I write my current book. I'm really excited about this, because I get the chance to meet new people while sharing a loved art that is no longer hidden in the shadows. Watch out, guys. We're bringing tales to Twitch.
