Creative people are not always the easiest to live with. I can say that because I am a writer.
I am so grateful my partner understands that sometimes I need my creative cave just as much as he need his man cave or, it seems, his Facebook. He knows when to leave me alone because he knows I’ll be back.
When writing “in the zone”, we artist types are often oblivious to what happens around us. You may see us, but sometimes we’re not really there.
Please be patient during the times we can’t bear to take our thoughts away from our work.
If you live with a creative, here are some insights into his/her psyche. If you are a creative, the link will remind you what our partners have to face.
