Truth for me. When I’m not permitted to write or feel that my writing time/space continuum has been impaired, I feel like I’m suffering. That feeling of fulfilling my life’s purpose as I’m typing…yes. When it’s right, it’s sublime. Even when it’s bad, it’s very, very good.

But you have to understand that the nature of my work resulted in me writing over 500 articles last year – that doesn’t include these blog posts. I write articles. It is what people pay me to do. And having already taken a week off of work between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, enduring another week without producing an article was like going without food: it was unbearable.
