Most of the writers I know are weird hybrids.
There’s a strong streak of egomania coupled with extreme shyness. Writing’s kind of like exhibitionism in private.
And there’s also a strange loneliness, and a desire to have some kind of conversation with people, but not a real great ability to do it in person.
David Foster Wallace
