Hermit tendencies

I think most writers have a hermit side of their personality. We have to, else how would we survive all those hours in isolation during the times when we actually WRITE (instead of talking about writing or promoting our writing)?

I find (at least for me) that there's sometimes a danger of getting TOO hermit-ish, and then I force myself to take a walk outside, to see friends in person, to actually experience (*gasp) Real Life. And whenever I do, I inevitably get re-inspired and excited about my work again. I find getting regular exercise is important, too.

What about the rest of you? Is your inclination hermit-like or not? What's your inspiration when you feel like you and your work are dragging your heels?

Thanks for all the cat name ideas, by the way. Stay tuned for the official cat naming in an upcoming strip!
