On Fire

when writing is on fire, the hands are steady, the mistakes are few and the connections are clearer than 20/20 vision. the eureka moment is emboldened by the crystallizing of facts and evidence, the arguments become thick. time becomes immaterial, as if it has stopped like the clock outside at 2pm. one can only savor the writing, and the joy that as the day draws to a close, one has written not just more than 1000 words. one has written the meaningful, powerful words.
