Let's do it together

When my husband and I started dating, we used to have incredibly long phone conversations where neither wanted to get off. As long as we were talking, we were together. The only thing that got us off was me saying, "If you go to sleep and I go to sleep, at least we are doing the same thing."

Some view writing as lonely. We are alone in a room, listening to people who aren't there, aren't even real. To non-writers this looks like we are alone.

But we're not.

When I'm writing, I'm doing something tons of other writers are doing that exact moment, people who are just like me, who understand me and don't think I'm crazy when I say I threatened to kill my heroine because she wouldn't shut up.

So everyone reading this...if you write and I write, we are doing the same thing.

So get writing, so I won't be alone.
