The Modern Writer

Posted: May 14, 2014 in My Opinion

This is a great article about writing. It can be a lonely profession but greatly rewarding. Solitude is important for the writer. Having a family can make this challenging but to be any good a writer must find this solitude.

John Steinbeck once said, “All great and precious things are lonely.” Actually he wrote that. In East of Eden (phenomenal book, by the way.)

Writing is a lonely job. The act of putting words on paper with the clear goal of creating some form of art, whether is a novel, a short story, a poem, or a play requires solitude. It’s an inexorable truth about the condition of the writer; he has to be able to put aside the real world, the world outside his window, so he can focus more on the world that he’s creating.
