Since I started taking my writing seriously I noticed that I have started to become a bit of hermit. I tend to want to be at home hovering over my keyboard getting it done. I realized the other day I hadn’t left the house in 3 days. Weird for me. Before this I was out all the time running around and I was still getting writing done. Not as much mind you but still. I was writing.
Is this what being a serious writer is? Giving up most of your social life to lock yourself in your office with a computer? Most of the people you interact with throughout the day are on Facebook and Twitter? I have found myself putting off anything that takes me away from my office. Especially during my prime writing hours. I know we are supposed to guard this time but I definitely feel like I’ve turned into a recluse.
This week I’m changing my tune. I’ve gone to the gym almost every day so at least I am getting out and about. And I’m not gaining back the weight I worked so hard to lose in the last year. Here is that balance thing again.
Anyone else's writing or work make them reclusive? Comment below.
