Prompt: a time you felt lonely

September 5, 2020

As Goldberg writes,

Reach out of the deep chasm of loneliness and express yourself to another human being… Write so they understand. Art is communication. Taste the bitterness of isolation, and from that place feel a kinship and compassion for all people who have been alone. Then in your writing lead yourself out of it by thinking of someone and wanting to express your life to him. Reach out in your writing to another lonely soul.”

Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones
