Robert De Niro On Writers

Sadly, a bit of truth to this.

A Pondering Mind

The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine-addled, crippled by procrastination, consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing, and soul-crushing inadequacy. And that’s on a good day. - Robert De Niro

Born: August 17, 1943

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

    1. I think sometimes they do all pile up. When Hemingway’s alcoholism became too much, probably with most or all of what we are talking about, we lost a literary genius (and Nobel Prize winner). It is a terrible thing. But, also, it can be a source of our inspiration. I have my moments. And, I suspect most people do. I suppose it touched a nerve, of sorts. (I have written about this kind of thing before; see, also: https://stillanotherwritersblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/02/je-est-un-autre/ and https://stillanotherwritersblog.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/damnit-or-we-are-all-just-little-factories/)
