writing

A person becomes a writer because they’re deficient. They have problems. They’re crazy. They have unhappy families. They’re eccentric… there’s a strong irrationality about the writing life. Often a writer writes just to maintain their sanity.” (Paul Theroux)

So what does this say about me?

Sounds like Paul Theroux speaks from what he knows. The secret is out on all of us. Writing is an extension of ourselves, however, hmmm, wonderful or twisted ourselves may be.
I know what this says about you all...but the real question is ... what does this say about me? LOL
