Your selection of writers’ quotes is so thoughtful.

It’s worth noting that McCullers uses the word “people”, and not “characters”, and I think that usage speaks to the power of the creative mind and what’s required to realize its output, as well as to McCullers’ recognition of how her writing life makes her non-writing life somehow more tolerable by making her loneliness “less keen”.
