I can vouch for Ernest Hemingway’s statement.
I know well what it’s like to be left alone so you can write and not be interrupted. As a result, I assume that probably most writers feel the same way.
What I don’t know is why others would feel this way. From my point of view, I struggle to focus, and if I’m interrupted, I lose concentration. As a result, I become diverted from my inspirational path. The better news is that I recover most times quickly and can continue writing.
As it happened, my writing experience began late in my life. After meeting someone and falling in love, we moved in together and became partners. Partners, not only in the sense of cohabitation but also in having a coach. Someone who not only motivated but encouraged me to write. We would discuss every piece of writing I completed, followed by many suggestions and ideas.
In my case, there are many solutions to people’s interruption. One of these is finding a place where no people can interrupt you. Slipping down to our local library is one of the solutions. However, for me, ruthlessness is not an option; the reason for this would be my life philosophy. It is not possible for my partner to ever interrupt me.
Now, after more than 600 articles posted and 20,000 hits on my website, I can agree with Ernest Hemingway:
“But the best writing is certainly when you are in love.”
