If I were manic-depressive, I would be in the manic stage, at least with regard to my writing. It’s nearly 1:30 in the morning and all I can think about is writing. I have multiple projects in the works (see below) and a few other things I want to work on once the current list gets pared down a bit. The ideas just keep coming to me, or coming back to me, as the case may be. It’s wonderful and exhilirating and frustrating all at once because I can’t write everything now.
I love times like these, when all I have to do is sit in front of the computer and let the creativity flow out my fingertips. The manic part is two-fold: the urge to write because it just feels so good to be creating and the need to write as fast as I can before the idea factory shuts down. Not that it will this time, but it has before—and then writing is as painful as a process as, say, watching Bush give a speech. Pretty painful.
I’m writing and it feels good to be writing and I need to focus on that and not the not-writing part that might follow this bout of super productive writing. But I’m a writer and I can’t help but think about what comes next.
Hopefully more writing.
