I watched Capote last night.

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?
