I am utterly consumed by the writing of Everyday Flood (that's what the story is called.) I woke up this morning and as soon as the sleep cleared I was writing. I almost forgot to eat. I am late and a little tired and really dreading work, but also absolutely giddy with delight that I finally have something I WANT to work on, and something where there is no block or barrier to my writing nonstop for hours. I could do this for the rest of my life and I feel more confident than other that within the next couple of years I will discover my voice and be able to do this with regularity and conviction. The only question that remains is whether I can produce something of value to others or of commercial value, but that's really a side-issue. I am satisfied with my own work, others be damned. Every neuron in my brain is buzzing with creativity and delight. This is great, awesome, incredible.
