What a feeling!

Just typing that title made me think of Flashdance — that lovely scene where she dances across the floor with the theme song playing, at the end when she is auditioning for the balley company. The rush I get when I watch that scene is exactly what it feels like to truly love your job.

Even if it doesn't have a theme song.

Anyway, to get to my point — every once in a while when I'm working I just get this feeling like I want to stay in the current moment forever. Today it was when I was sitting on my bed just after lunch, working my tail off so that I could get something done before my afternoon horseback riding lesson. Both of my cats were sleeping on the bed while I worked, and I felt like I almost didn't want to leave — not even to see my horse. I would have been quite content just to stay there and continue working.

Do you get these moments too, when you just love writing so much that's all you want to do? What triggers this feeling for you?
