A Touch of Madness

"There is no great genius without some touch of madness." ~Lucius Annaeus Seneca.

I think it's safe to say that the creative and the intelligent walk that fine line between what society deems "normalcy" and "insanity."  Sometimes members society don't like those who waiver, or outright defy, the conventions it has set.  Sometimes they feel the need to "deal" with the nonconformists.

I think it's also safe to say that most, if not all, of us on this wonderful writing site can categorize ourselves as either creative, intelligent, or both.

For this challenge of sorts, I want you to imagine that society has deemed the creative and/or intelligent unfit to be a part of society.  That the creative/intelligent folks need to be "put away" somewhere, somehow.  What happens to the creative folks?  Preferably, I'd like this to fit you; in other words, you should think about this from either your "self-self" perspective or your "Protag-self" perspective.  But you can change it up if you want, I really don't mind.

The End
