Do you think your writing improves or is affected in any other way by intense emotional states? Examples would include depression, immense anger(not rage), or even something like apathy? I ask this because some of the best writers in history had... problems, (my favorite example being Edgar Allan Poe, who has a life that would make the average horror story look tame by comparison at times,) and also from my own experiences. The latter is some of my best writing, when it comes to voice and prolificness, occurred at rather... rough times. Example is probably the first time I got to 10,000 words, all written in a voice that shone through. Now, I'll be fair, stylistically it has huge problems, but the writing flowed like smooth butter. But now? Writing it is like trying to force my way through a concrete wall. Another example is my first poem, which was quite scary territory at the time. So, you have experiences like that? Very curious about this.
