The ending scared the crap out of the novelist within me. The outcome projected the absolute greatest thing and the absolute worst thing that can happen to a writer; Writing something considered the greatest book of its time, and losing your mind and your self in the process of writing said book. I am officially shaking in my booties.
Did any other writers get the same reaction? If not from "Capote," than similar uninspiration from anything else? Has anything ever completely anti-motivated you to write?
Second question: What does motivate you to write?
