It’s wondrous…meditation like, sometimes it seems like you are taking dictation and sometimes you may have to take some time to transition back to the ‘real world’ after being ‘in the zone’. It’s what pulls me back to the action and experience of writing, once it’s happened. Breathing becomes like breathing, during meditation, slow and deep. I look up and two hours is gone and it feels like five minutes. I’m dazed, but not confused; I’m hyper-focused and the adrenaline is flowing. It’s like leaving the starter blocks in a race. Time slows down and you’re able to absorb the scene, your characters, the plot, and the enjoyment of entertaining yourself. It’s a natural high for me.
