I was thinking this weekend as I sat and typed some things out on my laptop that writing is a solitary thing.
See I was fussing in my head about the fact that Jason was working Saturday and so didn't have time to see me and then the next thought was "oh, well, I need to write some posts for next week anyway, and I couldn't do that if I was seeing him."
Which, I guess I'd never really thought about that before.
I can only speak for myself while assuming many others are the same way but I write alone. I can't write and carry on a conversation.
If I'm in the middle of a thought or telling a story or writing out something, a phone call can throw me right off.
Sometimes, I can even distract myself and lose whatever it was I was trying to say, but yeah, writing is a solitary event.
Even when I'm writing about a connection or relationship with someone else I'm doing so alone.
I'm not complaining about it, just noticing it.
I like to write. I think I actually *need* to write.
But it's not a social thing.
Just me, alone with my thoughts.
