The ironic thing is that to be a good writer you need to interact with people. You really do. You need to understand the ebb and flow of conversation in order to write believable dialogue. To make the plot work it's essential to have some kind of understanding of the human condition, what makes people tick. All this knowledge requires social time, which isn't always easy to come by if you work at home surrounded by solitude.
