Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."
I spotted this quote while checking on something not related to house renovation nor grandchildren and immediately paired writing with painting -- two of my favorite creative pursuits.
Doctorow suggests that schizophrenia is acceptable, but could it also be that it is a little necessary? I often think I do my best work when "I" am "out of control;" when that "other" self speaks. I sometimes look back at paragraphs or paintings and wonder who strung the words or brushed the paint.
A good thing. Letting the other half out!
