Because damn if this doesn't feel good.
Anj Kincaid. I like him. He is fun to torment, and not hard to write. ...And yes, his face is vaguely based on mine. I don't know why I didn't Google for facial expressions. Eh, done is done.
I swear I dropped into Flow when I was writing. I love flow. It's this rush, and rather than browsing other tabs and being blocked I'm typing furiously. Being me, I'm still going back and editing as I do it, but I'm getting paragraphs done and things are progressing, one to two to three. Is that what it's like to be manic? I wanted to stop, but I felt like I had to reach a certain point first, so I kept going. This happens sometimes when I'm writing - I want to get a little bit further and stop, but then I see another point I have to reach.
When I write papers, the ones that everyone loves are the ones I enjoy doing. And apparently people do like my papers. When I'm enjoying a paper I get sardonic, I don't lose my threads, and apparently I am very good at rephrasing. Writing stories is a little like that. Just different in every way.
