In spite of being named after a Barbara Strisand song,I am not a big fan. I suppose I'm here because I am a Douglas Adams fan. As a writer myself, I admire his writing style and his huge imagination. The style can be copied, the imagination is gone, woe!
Ok, now you know two things about me. Actually three, but I don't count the Barbara Strisand bit. Other things - I live in Yorkshire but am not a native - I wear glasses to read but can tell the number on a bus before most people in my family can see the bus - I cannot wake up without drinking ridiculously strong coffee and my cat is dead.
I am here to read, listen and talk about writing. Not just SF, although I enjoy it it all from Asimov to Banks - actually that doesn't get me far, has Zaphod written anything lately?
Yeah, writing, as an art form, like painting or playing the fiddle or building snowmen. Oh yes it is!
Writing, and WHY do humans do it?
