Maybe it's the weather

Maybe it's where I live.

But I've been feeling isolated lately. There's been very little chatter on the net from my usual buddies, Yahoo messenger has been empty, and forums are talking about things I don't care about.

Ever been surrounded by a crowd of people yet feel alone? My family and work fills my day. My friends call and I'm busy all day long with projects but when I sit down to write there's just me. I haven't anyone to discuss this passion with. No one I know in real life actually gets me, just the writers I've met online. Thank goodness for them or I would have gone mad.

I went to RT convention last year and finally had the opportunity to meet writers in person and talk shop. I loved it. This year I'm going to the Liberty States Fiction Writers convention. I'm really looking forward to getting regenerated.

Ever feel like this? What do you do?

The isolation is one of the worst part of the writer life. Every now and then I feel myself slide into one of those funks.

I cope by taking a step back from the writing. Sometimes I'll call a friend. Often I will read one of my favorite books (I guess being in someone's world makes mine less lonesome?!) or I'll watch a movie.

I do agree, though. It's much worse in winter.
