>>7564600 It's just fear of discovering that what you're writing isn't actually good, so you can only write when you're stoned or drunk in order to have an excuse if it turns out shit.
You have to get over this anxiety if you're going to enjoy writing, just tell yourself that "the first draft of everything is shit" and that no one will ever see what you write until you've polished it and decide to show it to them.
Seriously, this has nothing to do with the psychotropic effects of weed and everything to do with anxiety.
It's always said that when you're high, you think your ideas are good, but then when you're sober again, you realize that they weren't good after all. That's not true in my experience. I get ideas when I'm high that I think are brilliant even after I'm no longer high.
>>7564760 You are right. I do know that weed changes the way you think, so perhaps it is good for thinking outside of the box and brainstorming. However in writing you should not set up a crutch like that (for an easy fix, lose the ego). The reality is that maybe OP is not willing to leave his ego at the door. One thing you realize is that no matter what point you are in life you will always look back and think that you can't believe you used to think this, or you can't believe you said that. You call yourself stupid based on what you did in the past. And ten years from now you might say the same thing about yourself now. It's kind of humbling when you realize that your future self will look down on you.
>>7564772 Projecting, people need to stop applying this where it need not be applied. People learn from their mistakes, so yes, when people give advice they might project their personal experiences. There is nothing wrong with this.
>>7564767 What you make of a drug is entirely on you. In our society we are told that if you take this, you will become a homeless addict. Or if you take this your teeth WILL ROT. None of this is true. It is your character traits which are responsible for your actions, whether you use a drug casually, or end up neglecting your teeth and ending up homeless. You look at it as if it is your mind under the influence of the drug. I tell you that you should rather look at it as if it is that drug (and all it's effects) under the influence of your mind. Your mind is the dominant force here.
Going on a tangent, the same could be said with psychedelics. Not everyone who takes LSD ends up a mystic at the end of it. A knuckle dragging meathead is taking LSD for fun, he won't make anything meaningful of it. But look at what psychedelics did for Aldous Huxley. They were one of many interests for him, and they brought a wealth of information for his writing. He made something out of it.
Just go to any marijuana forum. See for yourself, these people are clearly absolutely retarded judging by their syntax. So when they say "oh yeah, my ideas sound good while high but shit when sober" you need to keep in mind that you are reading the posts of a low or average intelligence individual. Their ideas are always uninspired and stupid. Don't take their word for it, you need to see and understand for yourself.
I do my best writing high. Have shared some of it on here and gotten good responses.
You just need to use weed as something that gets you into the headspace where you write your best shit. By that I mean, weed is just a tool to help you be more receptive to that inspiration, not the inspiration itself. Wagner used to say he was tuned into divine energies around him. That's what weed should be. Just something that tunes your internal receiver.
Know what you want to write, what you want to say, what makes you feel that urge to create in your bones, and then the next time you do that thing get blasted and write something down.
>>7564866 It's hard to put it into words. I think it is more of an understanding than anything you could put into scientific terms at the moment. It simply isn't studied enough to know the effects 100%, especially considering the fact that most certainly everyone reacts differently. I noticed that it makes me think outside of the box.
Try to learn your own psychology and find ways to exploit it. You can't sit down and write for an hour at a time? Try out weird patterns, do literally one minute of writing, or even just one sentence, then walk away for a minute, then come back. Just experiment. Learn to take advantage of your productive moods and swing them in your favor.
>>7565011 That's really rude. Almost like you were some alcohol drinking football watching dullard. If there is a human being who perfectly embodies a big fuck you to humanity, it's the booze drinking football watching escapist.
