Oftentimes writing is lonely. Perhaps you have been writing a year or two, secret “closet” writing, and one day shyly mention your new passion to a group of friends. “Oh, that’s nice,” they say, but they look at you wondering, and in their expressions you read what they are really thinking: You mean you spend an hour every day just writing? Writing in your journal or writing a story, or for heaven’s sake, a poem? You do that when you could be advancing your career or if not that, scrubbing out the mildew from your bathroom tile? Even if your tile is sparkling, and your career is going along just fine, what is the purpose of scratching down all those words? There are times when our non-writing friends just don’t get it and we feel misunderstood. We may begin to think that maybe this writing obsession is a little self-absorbed, and there might be more productive ways of spending our time.
