I knew a writer who created drama whenever and wherever he could. His eyes would light up and he’d say, “stories, writers need to create drama for stories.”
However, he rarely ever got any writing done because he had so much drama and backlash from the things he’d do.
For me, I find that creating or being a party to drama and chaos extinguishes my creative flow.
Just the everydayness of life is enough for writers to gain enough insight and experience to write and create drama in their stories. They do not need to create it or go take an active part in it.
For me – I want to stay far, far away from anyone and anything that affects my serenity which will, in turn, dampen my creativity.
