Writing can be lonely.
I know people who make visual art; others who sculpt; still others who play music all of whom are creative as an activity of personal expression.
Some of the work of my friends can be unsettling or even disturbing but, still, they are able to share the product of their creativity with friends and family.
Writing is different at least, it seems to be.
With writing, anybody who knows the artist* personally can only ever filter their experience of the work with two questions: "how does this affect me?" and "what does it say to me about the artist?"
They cannot experience it as I intend it.
It is writing, meant to be enjoyed by reading. Only a stranger can do that.
