"As a writer you are free. You are about the freest person that ever was. Your freedom is what you have bought with your solitude, your loneliness."
It's funny, but I rarely feel alone or lonely when I write. When I write non-fiction, I think of the people I've talked to for the story. And when I write fiction, my characters keep me company.
Either way, I'm right at home.
