Just wondering why.

most great writers have their unique or particular views which shock the world. so maybe they are more likely to have some distinctive experiences?

Well, there are more great writers who died of natural causes than the ones who took their own life. Being a great writer seems like a great job to me. :p Depression can happen to anyone, including (or perhaps especially) great people.

Good point each of you. Being a great writer seems like a tragic job. They need some mandatory health insurance!

Monetary problem, chronic depression, or nihilistic outlook on life.
