I’ve never tried any drug. But the feeling while writing when everything floats and you ride on the creative flow like a safe sailor in a boat can not possibly be better.
While riding on the creative flow I’ll be the next Oscar winner. I am the best writer ever been. I am God.
That feeling can’t be beaten by any artificial intake.
The structure of act two was ready. All scenes planned and goals for every character in every scene were there. Finally I allowed myself to write.
The third act got its structure ready but the goals are not done yet. But I felt that I have at least planned ahead and know where the story is going. That has rarely been the case before.
I know, I told my self to not write until I had the whole script planned, but I got more and more… I don’t know… Not stuck, but like walking in mud up to the knees. That didn’t feel right.
My heart and my brain had a meeting and agreed that writing on the script was allowed. But act two only.
