Since the start of this year I’ve been living on a schedule where my day starts just before noon.
I go to the office to do some consultancy or the difficult jobs for about six hours, then go home and write for about 5 hours after dinner.
In the last 4 weeks I’ve hardly had a day where I didn’t write something. I joined Literotica to post stories which would not really fit on a site like this and while mainly writing those I calculated I’ve written 50,000 words in that time.
I still have loads of ideas to put into writing. And with the requests to continue two of the posted stories I feel like I could write 24/7 and never finish.
Writing gives me a sense of freedom I never had before (with the exception of drawing), and it feels more addictive than good food or drinking (my only other choice of drugs).
The moment I get an idea in my head which I hadn’t seen before is thrilling. The moment I start on a story is exciting, ending one gives me satisfaction and if just one reader likes it I get a sense of pride.
At the moment I’d rather write than do anything else. Give me a laptop and my music collection and I’ll forget all about the world around me.
