How Many Friends Do You Have?

By On Aug 23 2012, 12:01 pm

Friends come in various assortments. Maybe they're lifelong, maybe they're temporary. Are yours related to you or someone you met?
I saw an article about friends and found myself thinking about the ones I've had and have. As a writer, I'm naturally reclusive. I seldom leave home or go outside. Of course, I'm self-employed, so this makes for an easy option not to open my door. My dress up clothes are usually clean sweats and a t-shirt without stains.

So, who are my friends?

My adult son can be said to be number one. It's just us in my house. If I go shopping when he's not at work, he goes along (how else can he get mom to pay for his "stuff').

My other friends don't spread far from the family roots. I spend a lot of time with my brother and his wife. He's my handyman when I need one and she's my shopping buddy when I have the urge to talk while I shop.

And the others… None. I hang with my father, not often as our busy schedules are never insync.

Then I have my online acquaintences for chatter and a few special ones I wished lived closer, but glad they don't or I'd never get any writing done.

So, are friends necessary? I guess that depends on how well you're content with your own company.

    I love being one of your chatter buddies! You rock :) If we lived closer we could tear up the town together when we needed a break from writing.

  2. I follow your romance party group as a lurker, but you have always had a strong “voice” that echoes with a charismatic quality. One of these days I will read some of your material. Since I have been at home taking care of my son, the level of quality of my own writing has gotten better. I am hoping to publish more than the one book I currently have on the market. My friends are few, but they mean a lot to me. I do consider you a friend because you have had some encouraging you tossed in my direction once in a great while. I do count myself as at least an aquaintance friend. =)
