Writing and Insanity..

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Some of the most brilliant writers belong in insane asylums. Some do drugs or have abuse problems. A ton of them possess various psychological disorders. Does writing mean that your insane, and headed to the loony bin?

I would think not. As long as a writer can control it I doubt it would land people there. I also think that in order to come up with the stories there is a little bit of insanity in each writer to come up with all those amazing stories.

Also writers tend to have an overactive imagination at least I do. They have it more then non creative types. In a way it would not surprise me that some people like normal ones would not be able to handle it.

Normal people would not understand how hard it is to write a story when the character screams loudly in your head. Once writers learn how to control it though I doubt anyone will end up in the loony bin because of writing.

Any thoughts about writers and insanity?

Until next time,

One thought on “Writing and Insanity..

  1. I think in order to keep writing and stay in touch with characters and stories, we need to be a touch of out of sorts. Who else would spend hours trying to figure out how a person (who doesn't exist) will turn out and what will happen?
