Featured Topic: How to Get Your Book Published
I know that to be a good writer, you must spend a large portion of the day writing. But what I do not understand is how writers can spend all day alone, isolated with just their work all day. Wouldn't that drive someone crazy? I'm just saying. Please enlighten me. I don't understand this writing thing too well. Thank you!
Also I like to talk out plot problems with my partner and friends...sometimes family...sometimes hearing these issues aloud help me write through the problem instead of getting annoyed within my own head (happens alot)
There are times I purposely isolate myself for a couple of hours serious writing time, but this would be no different for me If my day job was in an office or something that requires only one person to complete a task.
I think it's important not to forget there is a big world our there and the more experiences you have in it, the more material you have for writing!

I love that last bit

Also, research is important and can take a lot of different forms. Going on a hike and examining nature, or visiting a tourist attraction, can absolutely be an important part of writing.
