In 1847 London got its first double decker omnibus and Londoners got to see London above eye level. Well not quite. You get what you pay for, and those first double-deck passengers may have had a seat with a view but they were most likely too busy shivering in London drizzle to be able to enjoy the view. Those early omnibuses were roofless and tickets to the top deck went for a third of the price of those below.

My First Writing Group: The Internet

Posted by Gloria Spielman on Thursday, 10 November 2011 in On Writing · 0 Comments

 This post was my second guest blog for the Jewish Book Council and appeared on The Forward.

It all started back in March 1999. We'd just got our very first home Internet connection and I was setting off to navigate cyberspace and figure out what exactly was out there in that World Wide Web thing that everyone was going on about. These were the days of the Netscape browser and dial-up internet, which hogged the phone line and meant that you could either surf or make a phone call but not at the same time. My husband had assured me that the Internet would help my writing. I was about to discover he was right.
