King once wrote that his story “Cujo” was an acknowledgement to his addictions. He made a point to say our need to be in an altered state has nothing to do with our creativity. I agree with this entirely. I desire to be fucked up so I can escape reality.
Writing provides an escape from reality. But, it’s a lot more work. Booze is effortless and happens instantly. That is my weakness. This year’s focus and efforts ill be towards handling reality and avoiding the run I make from it on a normal basis. Maybe you’ll be able to help.
