Emails to my Therapist

The Solitary Freelance Writer

Have I mentioned? On the morning of April 18, I’ll be giving the keynote for the Triangle Area Freelancers conference on “Seven Secrets of Freelancing I Wish I’d Known from the Start.” If you’re in central North Carolina, I hope you’ll come. I also wish there had been a TAF years ago when I was getting started in magazines and newspapers.

I remember when the feeling of solitude started to feel heavy at some point in the second half of my first year. I decided that maybe going out to lunch would help, but couldn’t find anybody loose to join me that day. So I went by myself to a semi-hip restaurant where they had booths placed in odd settings within the restaurant. Mine, as it happened, was in a jail cell. So I sat there by myself looking through actual bars.

Nobody needs networking more than writers, for information, contacts, and mental health.
