Welcome to The Faraway Nearby



Writers are solitaries by vocation and necessity. I sometimes think the test is not so much talent, which is not as rare as people think, but purpose or vocation, which manifests in part as the ability to endure a lot of solitude and keep working.

    I do hope that’s true. I might have a glimmer of a chance at last, if it is! 🙂

    Hi. I agree that a lot of people have talent, but get bogged down in daily life so they never have the chance to develop or explore. How many brilliant people have fallen by the wayside? Jane
