Embracing solitude

Category: Life

So, I think that until I have my NeuroSwitch, provided that it works, I’m going to quit the world of social typing. I’m going to put everything into one solid blog post per day, other writing projects, and little else.

Honestly, trying to type socially is getting to be depressing, it just reminds me how ridiculously slow I’ve become. I’m going to embrace solitude and give everything to my craft. I think it’s the best way to stay fairly sane.

    Whatever keeps you sane. I don’t think prioritizing is a bad thing. I know it’s no consolation, but I have not noticed your typing becoming slower.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    I embraced solitude for awhile recently, and it was the most kick ass thing I could have done as, didn’t feel like it at the time, but once I took a gamble/risk, it’s like I walked right in like an unpaid guest at the Four Seasons and just dropped drawers and jumped in the hottub naked and Life Said, Oh, He Must be a Rock Start Guest.

    I just know you’re gonna feel the same way, ..soon. Very Soon.

    I suppose it will make us value your words even more.

    I blogged about this same dilemma after reading your post. Good luck prioritizing. As long as the writing gets done, I say do what you need to, no?
