A writer is a word junkie, a crazed addict of paper and ink. His paraphernalia includes a pen or pencil, some paper, typewriter or computer, and his imagination. A writer must secure his fix and write daily. If he doesn’t, he’s bound to feel sick, unbalanced, and maladjusted, which may or may not result in volatile consequences for society at large. Therefore, we should all do well to keep the writer well fed. If you find a writer on the street, hair billowing wild, going crazy, hand him a pen and some paper to keep him busy. Otherwise, he’s bound to take his twisted imagination out on just about anybody — Even you.
