A well known quote from this movie is as follow; "You can't be a proper writer without a touch of madness can you?." - Where is the beauty in this particular line? All of it. It is as true as can be. One cannot hope to write to their greatest ability without a little lingering madness. Every writer has such a trait inside them.
You cannot hope to do what you do best without a slight form of madness about yourself or your ambitions, for pure brilliance shines through and beyond such a thing. Some may believe that little bit of madness that writers possess is merely a disease or form of virus that prevents them from reaching their full potential, but they would be wrong. In order for a writer to write, and to write well, he or she must hold such a passion for working with this madness.
Do you hold that little spark of madness whenever you put pen to paper? or your fingers to a keyboard?
