Drunk on Writing

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." - Ray Bradbury

I like this quote because it emphases what I've always liked about writing: it's an escape. It's not that life is horrible. It's that life needs venting for the imagination. The subconscious, the seat of imagination, is a powerful thing and, as Freud has taught us, looking to get out. There are only two options, then: write or dream. Or else: die.
