Do you need to be an alcoholic to understand such a problem, to understand an alcoholic? Do you have to have tried to commit suicide to understand depression? If so is – damn. A horror writer not going through troubles such as losing relatives or having drinking problems, well, that’s me. Sounds quite strange, I guess, but I think I do understand any way. I heard Stephen King based the drinking father in his novel The Shining on himself, even though he didn’t realise it himself for several years. Guess that means that this inspiration came from his drinking problem, and that he wouldn’t have written this great novel if he never had it. So I need to start drinking to get inspiration now…?
My ass I will.
