I’ve been thinking a lot about instant gratification over the last few months. Digging into my own process in the troughs between publication of one piece or another, I’ve been looking at my addiction to the high I get from sending off a work. The natural neurochemicals aren’t exactly illicit drugs, but it’s an addiction nonetheless. I wrote about this kind of wish-fulfillment merry-go-round in this month’s Create Like Crazy essay, and I’m sorry in advance for what I’ll do to you at the end of this one.
