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. The hardest part for me is getting the right idea to get started or covering the boring connective tissue between plot points. Many times, I'll type in [INSERT] and skip whole parts to keep the momentum going. Then I return to the [INSERT] instances when I'm more inspired.(less)

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)
