Following my most recent hub I had to come here and ask you guys this. After all we are all writers. Virginia Woolf, David Foster Wallance, many are the names, many are the faces. I think Depression is deeply bound to creativity and while one is condemned to a life of mental misery one is also gifted with the hability to craft and shape worlds, people and situations within the imaginarium. What is your opinion? Do you personally know any case?

Exactly what I think!! You have said it all man. Never stop producing art. Never. Great awnser.
And do you think Depression can be a tool for any other besides art? Such as science?
Absolutely. I think a person's mental and emotional state can affect any or every area of their life, particularly in terms of their creativity. Whatever outlet they chose to use could show evidence of a contented mentality, disturbance or depression
Thanks for sharing. It's an interesting point of view. I believe greatest art comes from a depressive mind, the thing is, it only happens if art is the only purpose you have to hang on to. The only thing you have in life. Like van Gogh and many other
I believe that's perpetuating an inaccurate stereotype. For every tortured, depressed artist, there are plenty who are mentally healthy, and create.
So you are one of the examples
For me it started from writing my feelings down which is one of the best therapies for depression. Some people will be better suited to pick up a pencil or paint brush and yes in answer to your other question a scientist could use this state of mind.
