The loneliness of the long-form writer


Writing is clearly something that most people do alone, but I do wish writing a novel was less solitary.

I wish I could write with people around me, but I know they would only distract me.

I wish I could talk about my story, but I know the chatter would only distract me.

I wish I could share my work in progress, but I know any feedback would only distract me.

It seems that when you get to the editing and review stage writing becomes more sociable, and you can happily discuss your work with family, fans and critics. Until then, I’ll continue alone.
