A Not So Lonely Life
Over the years, I've seen numerous comments about how writers sequester themselves away and lead a lonely existence honing their craft. I think all writers have their favorite place and environment in which to work with a sense of privacy that encourages and supports their creativity. Although I've had several different places, including a living room easy chair with our cat snuggled beside me, mine is my home office.
Arriving at this place has taken me through memorable growing up, family, and career events and meeting many interesting people. These all have influenced me in various ways as to sources and ideas that became stories.
My road to writing is similar to others. We all draw on our life experiences and observations of society and the world. What is really interesting is how many different stories, styles, forms, and perspectives we create to arrive at some meaningful result to which our audiences relate and respond. Making those connections is gratifying and I think is the driving force as to why we write.
I would like to use my blog journal as an opportunity to share some insights on books and have interactive discussions with others and their experiences and my perspective that writing may be a not so lonely life
