“There’s this moment in creation, when you’ve made something truly special, where you become euphoric. And then, utterly lonely.”
Tell me about your loneliness. Tell me about all the different kinds of loneliness you have known. Begin each paragraph with the words, “There is the kind of loneliness that…”. Make each paragraph a specific instance of feeling lonely, as in, “There is the kind of loneliness you feel in bed with your partner when you’ve just failed at making love again and neither of you is talking about it,” or, “There is the kind of loneliness when you walk into your sons’ bedroom and realize it’s been a month since you’ve heard from him…”. You get the idea?
