So Alone

Stick figure drawing of man at desk typing on computer

Writing is a lonely business. You can talk about story with your friends over lunch. You can watch movies with your significant other and fall in love with the dialogue. You can exchange emails with a script reader about your latest draft. You can retweet other writers on Twitter. You can like Facebook posts about how hard it is to write and commiserate with your Facebook friend.

But at the end of the day, it's just you and the computer. (Or typewriter, you masochists)

All your friends have gone away. Your email is quiet. Your twitter is boring.

You are so alone. So, very, very alone.

I feel your pain.

But you don't write for your friends. You don't write for your teachers and your peers. You write for you.

Soldier on.
