By 1998 the number of regular readers to meanwhile (then called 'Meanwhile back
in reality) had increased significantly. From my bedsit apartment in Birkenhead
I was now reaching the world, or at least that's what it felt like. I would sit
in front of my trusty old Apple Mac computer (which at the time I didn't even
have a proper desk
for) write a 'meanwhile' and by the following evening would receive a flurry
from people who were for some reason interested enough to read what I had written.
It was gratifying to some extent, but really I just found motivation
in the fact that through my writing I was able to cross 'electronic' paths
with people I would probably not meet under any other circumstances.
