As a writer, to me words are freedom. They have to be. And writers must have the freedom to explore the extremities of their imagination; to provoke and poke around amidst the dirt and filth of the human condition. If not, drama becomes sanitised, homogenous and dull because it is only borne of fear. A corrosive fear that is the enemy of true creativity. Do what you want to do, not what anyone thinks you should do. Be brave. Be prepared to be hated and vilified, lied about and abused — it really is a great lesson in tolerance. You have the right to share your insides with the outside world. And maybe those who oppose genuine debate and dialogue need to be offended.
