Lots of poets say they write most when they are distressed or depressed or otherwise unhappy. Even if they don't, emotion plays a strong role... either in subject matter or inspiration... or some other role. Knowing you write more fiction and scholarly papers, how much does personal emotion, particularly in the negative, play in your writing? Maybe not in subject... more in how much you write or how far deep you dive in or the quality of your writing. Is it harder or easier to get started... and then to keep going... if your personal distress is great?
