Nobody likes a happy writer. They sit in their fancy chair at their expensive desk and write like there’s no tomorrow. They’re happy with their lives, happy with their relationships and they’re even happy with what they write.
Not me. Nope. I hate what I write. Matter of fact, if I could write it with my eyes closed I would. But I can’t. What I have learned is that the sadder and more miserable I am, the more I write.
Sometimes I write about my sadness (like I did Sunday). Sometimes, I get depressed and know if I just finished my novel, or my other non-fiction work, I could take that fat check and go on an extravagant book tour. Sometimes I’m just melancholy so rather than watch some movie about friendship I write about not having friends.
But when the sun shines, when the goin’s good and the sex is easy, I don’t want to write. I’m cool…I’m just fine. No need to struggle with that damn keyboard and all those plots and messy conflicts.
But the writer who can write when he’s happy… Now that is a REAL WRITER.
Me I gotta finish that book….I need more pain.
lots of good stuff
