Do you think Depression increases one Creativity? Is it linked to genius writers?


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?

    And do you think Depression can be a tool for any other besides art? Such as science?

    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
