my problem

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by professor poopatronic, Jun 29, 2002.

  1. this is going to sound really syupid and all you straight edge guys are going to burn me at the stake, but i have this dilemma. i'll just spit it out. i can't write unless i'm drunk and i hate drinking by myself (actually i don't really even like drinking that much in general). it fucking sucks. i just tried to jot some shit down and when i was done it was the stupidest crap ever (well all my stuff is stupid but this was just shitty and boring). and that's better than i usually do. normally i just end up staring at the keys and getting really pissed off. can somebody come drink with me? any suggestions on what to do are highly appreciated.

    well i'm one of those straight edge guys, but i'm not gonna give ya shit.

    i'm assuming you mean write as in literature of some form (not tagging). i'm a writer as well. like everything good stuff comes w/ time and practice. a practice my brother taught me is just writing, whenever, w/o inspiration w/o regard for how 'good' it sounds. you put down shit 75% of the time. but w/ time that decreases. your mind learns what is good, and how to form that quicker. it works out with time.

    i've been in your spot. i used to smoke to get god writings. now i'm sXe, seriously though, time and practice is where you get good.

    i need to start writing more. no job and living on my own in boulder. i'm sure i can find time to write more...

    If you can get the same effects from weed that you can from alcohol, then there's something wrong with you....
  9. i agree wholeheartedly. like i said, i really don't even like drinking that much but for some stupid reason i can write effortlessly for hours when i'm smashed. it really annoys me.

    and skydancer666, thanks for the encouragement. i end up throwing away or deleting the majority of the crap i write down anyways, and the stuff i do keep i should probably also throw in the trash. but it's not that the stuff i write sober isn't good, most of the time i seriously can't come up with a single word to write. that's part of the reason i post on here- not that anything i say on this board is of any value whatsoever, but if i get to typing about something it sometimes gives me an idea and then i cut to the notepad.
