“Being alone for any real length of time is romantic only in theory. In fact, all prolonged stretches of solitude — the kind that introverts like me impose upon themselves all the time, the kind that does not actually necessitate being physically alone — inevitably morph into loneliness.” Not for all of us. I wonder what would happen within you if you wrote about immersing yourself below the loneliness. Loneliness is just a false layer above something unknown and potentially marvelous.
