It's so true, even if you're just writing indexes.

Come to think of it, this applies to photography as well...

Are you sure that you aren't writing a comic about me? This seems to depict me pretty well!

This is my entire life, right there in those four panels.

Argh! Self-doubt! Briliance! Moods! Never, ever re-read your own work. So frustrating x_x

I used to think this just happened during NanoWrimo....then I started writing full least i'm not addicted to energy drinks, that's the only thing I can think of that would make the swings nastier...

Four weeks? That happens to me in four days. Sometimes, it all happens in the SAME day.

Lmao. That is so me. The only difference is that you could replace the word "week" every time it appears to "minute".

It's definitely a universal truth. I wonder if 4000 words is a universal truth as well, considering I tend to have bursts where 4000 words of brilliance come out and then suddenly I'm lucky to get 400. Seems so... :P ;)

Wow. How did you get into my brain? I am glad to see I am not the only one.
