I subscribe to your theory, brilliant prose is released only through pain. I have read vast amounts of work and it is obvious, from the first sentence, who has suffered. By the time the first paragraph is finished, you want to throttle them, plunge a fork  into their chest and twist. After finishing a full page, you want to pull their hair out, light them on fire while skull fucking their wife. In my quest for excellence, I would avail these techniques to all in need.

Luxury and abundance have cursed my life, love and joy flow in my veins. I am truly doomed yet knowing I could be part of the creative process is thrilling. A few noted authors, in my opinion, would benefit from some pain in their lives but if you know of someone who is  desperate for help, let me know.

Idyllic childhoods = not good for forging wonderful writey writey people.

Need that horror show back there, the one that forced the child to seclude themselves away from the madness of the adults into a world with things they could control, toys, books, and then the words that would be their lifelong refuge.
