NO. I usually write at the point where that internal conflict has been resolved. It makes it easier to keep controll over where the writing is going.
Yes and yes. But never underestimate the power of happiness as a creative force.
Yes, writing is often a form of personal therapy for me. In my full time job there is not much room for creativity. My own conflict with being a full time working mother was part of what inspired me to write my first picture book: Mommy's High Heel Shoes.
Sometimes. Depends on the writer. But I never have such problems, so I don't really know.
I'm a contradiction and i'm too often led by emotion
For me, the answer is YES, writing is a form of personal therapy.
Internal conflicts are most definitely a creative force. Internal conflicts provide me with the best material.
Writing is a way of setting things straight for sure. It is a way to say that hey, this is wrong. Writers often have a personal axe to grind.
Most definitely. Most of my published material would be an example of writing for personal therapy. Internal conflicts also provide the kind of existential crisis whereby the shrouding of truths, or even half-truths and principles, with lofty imagery provides an escape as well as an outlet. I would dare say that most of my best material, be it in print, online, in video format or even for radio was done during times of great personal difficulty and self-assessment.
Probably but great fun for all that - who cares ultimately? Internal conflicts are within us all - we may as well put them to good use. And if by resolving them we can pass on hard won experience - then it's all to the good.
I think this is true, although I cannot put my finger on it.
Of course writing is a form of personal therapy! What am I really afraid of? That's where the story is.
Internal conflicts are sometimes a creative force but are also sometimes a block. It just depends on the situation.
Writing for me has always been a personal catharsis. And, yes, internal conflicts have provided the impetus for many of my ideas and even entire projects. Writers have to get their inspiration somewhere, and individual conflicts, whether they be mine or others, provide me with a never-ceasing water supply.
