I worked for many years as a technical writing, writing about subjects I did not care about or that were mind-numbing. If I could power through a software user guide, I can crank out anything. Even if the writing is sub par, if I press long enough, I usually find my rhythm and break the block.

It feels like there is a constant swarm of emotion and experience and words inside me. The only way to survive it somewhat sane is to vent it. I vent it through writing. Writing allows me to create entirely new worlds and also map out the world inside my head.(less)
