"Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer's loneliness but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day."
-Ernest Hemingway's Nobel Prize Speech
A part of me thinks sometimes that this blog is enjoyed by as many people as it is, because I'm single. It is for that reason that I can write the way I do. I try to write so that someone who feels they have nothing in common with me, can relate on some level. I feel that will change if and when I'm in a relationship because at that point my focus is moreso on this one woman and making her happy.
I don't really like writing about any one person but eventually I probably will, and will do so a lot. And if its good I will probably start to really enjoy it, especially if my significant other does too. At that point I feel like people will think "Alright man damn we get it. You love her. Shit. Lets move on to something else."
Theres a different style a writer writes with when trying to please just one person than if they were trying to please a large audience. Maybe that new style won't work as well for me as this one does. Then again maybe at that point I won't really care. I don't know.
Although, I spoke of inspiration in the first version, I still don't whats to come from that inspiration. Women inspire the best art but, it's usually the longing for a woman that brings out the best in a writer. Having "the girl", from what I've seen, can go either way. Either really good work that everybody loves, especially the girl. Or terrible work that everyone hates, EXCEPT for the girl.
But maybe at that point that's all that matters?
Cleary, I'm still confused about this whole thing.
