Does love sap all creativity?

This is a valid question, right?

Though, there appear to be points and counterpoints all over the place. The archetype of the tortured artist would suggest that those who suffer are far more prolific. But there certainly are people who create beautiful things as a result of love and happiness in their heart.

Really, I am just trying to come up with a justification for why I haven't written a blog in over a week, or something like that. It has definitely been historically true for me that the best creations were made when I was miserable.

A couple of months ago, one of my blogger friends started a relationship, and just like that, her blog ceased. I asked her why, because I felt that writing was a big thing for her, and that it was a loss to not have her blog to read. She said that she just had other things on her mind, and that the things she was working through in the blog were not front-and-center anymore. I thought that seemed sad to see the writing stop. But now, here I am.
