Creativity = Suicide?
Creativity is something we are all born with to greater or lesser degrees. It is a vital part of our physiological make up and development. We learn to play and fantasize as children, skills we carry forward into our adulthood. However, if creativity takes hold of your entire existence then it becomes a disease that is parasitic, eating away at your whole world. It might sound melodramatic but creativity can become a cancer of the body or the trigger for psychotic episodes.
How many writers, musicians, search engine optimizers and business people who have either committed suicide or completely lost a grip on reality, reached their ultimate demise because they were unable to control their creative disease?
