Life and Art

Is it art? I love writing but I get distracted by life. My daughter is interested in shock therapy due to depression. Remember the old Snake Pit theory? If you put a psych patient in a pit of snakes, the shock will cure the depression/psychosis. Now it's done with an electrical impulse, but is it better and does it work?

Now, do we need shock therapy when we get depressed about our writing? How would we do that? Maybe by blending genre? How do we shock our work into exciting us. How do we keep going and interest ourselves and our readers? I don't have all the answers. For me, writing what excites me works. What excites you and keeps your writing fresh so you want to continue?
