A Writer's High?

A writer’s high. Is there such a thing or is it something mythical like a unicorn or Leprechaun?

It’s gotta exist because I’ve had it for the past several weeks. Free flowing thoughts, endless creativity, every scene coming to life as if viewing it from within the world. 

However, with most anything there is an opposite. Ever watch a commercial for medication? At the end the commentator rattles off very quickly all the side effects the medicine may cause and they’re usually pretty bad.

The downside to this amazing thing is lack of sleep, your mind will not settle down, and you’re constantly thinking about the story. All. Day. Long.

Scenes come to you in the middle of traffic and the worst of all, munchies are at level 1000.  My new super power—able to pack on a pound of fat a day without a care in the world! (Good thing I'm working out. 😀)

But I wouldn’t change it for anything. If you’ve ever experienced writer’s block or a dry spell, then you can really appreciate this. It's a very happy, serene, and magical place.

Okay, gotta go! Happy writing! Keep a tray of healthy snacks within arm’s reach. 😉
