The Lonely Writer :: An Introduction

While writing my recent posts about Fearless Writing, I also realized that sometimes the thing that keeps us from truly tapping creativity and letting it flourish in our writing is the solitary nature of writing. When it gets down business, you have to do it for yourself. That can be a daunting task.

Humans, by nature, are a social lot. Being alone, and projecting the fruits of that loneliness can get in the way of productive writing. After all, how many times have you found yourself with alone time, and planned on getting a lot of writing done, but squandered that time when it arrived? And how many times was it spent doing things that weren't as important or fulfilling to you?

My guess is that some of you are nodding right now.

In the coming weeks, I will be posting a six-part series of posts on the ability to embrace this lonely activity of writing, using this ability to tap your creativity, and perhaps even learn a little more about yourself in the process.

The working titles for these posts are as follows:

The Lonely Writer Part 1 :: Less Desire

The Lonely Writer Part 2 :: Contentment
The Lonely Writer Part 3 :: Avoiding Unnecessary Activity
The Lonely Writer Part 4 :: Complete Discipline
The Lonely Writer Part 5 :: Not Wandering in the World of Desire
The Lonely Writer Part 6 :: Not Seeking Security from Discursive Thoughts

I greatly encourage comments on these posts. This is an idea I've been playing with for a little while, and I'm curious as to whether others will identify with these topics.

Until then, keep the fingers on the keys.

I was nodding when i read this. Seeing that this is a 2-year old post, i wont prod about the subject but i was just Googling stuff on 'writer+lonely' cz i write and feel lonely. i loved it for about 5 months this year but it screwed my relationship with friends. ive lost that..connection to a certain extent with them. and its sad cz i would go into phases to write. im still figuring out how to deal with this.. its tough. i like the post, anyway. i love when people talk about things that are so..non-universal.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
