It would appear that some of the better writers that this world has to offer are often the dregs of society. The wasted drug users that can barely function in normal polite society.
I don’t know that if this is caused by their talent, but it might be an introverted kind of thing to use drugs. I don’t mean drugs the same way that your parents do. What I mean by drugs is they smoke and drink and consume copious amounts of caffeine just to function and get their craft onto paper.
There are those writers out there that are actually good role models as well. J.K. Rowling’s has become a billionaire with the written word and as far as I know she has never had any need to self medicate with the pleasure that are physically harmful.
I guess I can keep sober and just use my sheer will power and creativity to produce something awesome. I am thinking about foraying into fiction instead of the mass produced garbage that webmasters require of me. Now I just need a good idea.
