Also doesn't happen if you aren't a pretty girl. sigh.

I don't think I have ever been asked out for coffee from a library. Could it be that I am too old? Too   ummmm       not pretty?

Online probably won't be so insulting.

Actually, both ways can work for a writer.  The key word being "work." If you want your stories/novels/articles published, you're going to have to make an effort to market your talents/skills. If one editor rejects your work have it ready to send to the next prospect (or have already used the multiple submission technique).  Always have stories on the market circuit while you're writing the next ones.

But in a real world library you get to look at the pretty lasses as well, (under well established rules of people wathing/research),  and sometimes take one of them for a coffee or whatever ;-)  That never happens on line...


Also nice if the pretty lady or handsome gentleman turns out to be a publisher/editor.  Then you really have something in common.  ;)

Well you could save a little spot on your monitor for an internet chat window with a pretty lass waiting for smart comments and sexy quips  :-)

I agree, libraries do have the human element, I grew up in them and love them too.
