I am grateful for it.
Most of the reasons are obvious. It makes communication fast and easy. I can put my opinion and pictures out for public consumption and get near instant feedback.
It allows me to have conversations without having to go out in the world, and it gives me the chance to think before I write.
Not that I always do it, of course, but I have the opportunity.
I'm looking for a literary agent now. The search is easier from home on the computer as there's information available about who is good vs. who is a scammer.
With Internet comes email. Many agents accept email queries which saves time, money, and trees.
It can also be a huge time-sucking waste, but we have the option of walking away.
Whatever else it is, it makes navigating through huge reed patches of information, misinformation, and disinformation that much easier.
