Re: Cell Block Inquiry


Hi, I’m a first time user here. I have already completed the purple mountains of majesty tour. I took a bit less caffeine than normal today so perhaps I am not in my right mind.

I just wondered how common it is for other writers to feel as though they are in a prison cell when they write. Not just in a metaphorical sense, but in a literal one. Do all modern writers have the tendency to feel this way? I feel this is the result of a modernistic societal ploy, something like Orwell’s 1984 and Big Brother. But if this is something that only pertains to a wide span of modern writers, would that not indicate a higher potential yield than past harvests? If that were true, then there would be a higher ratio of writers in today’s society than yesteryears. Is this a facet only of modern society or all in my head?
