“You will know it because it will take your breath away, it will fire off neurons that have been waiting for a decade to fire off. It will create an emotional response. It is a feeling like falling in love, it is a feeling that you have tapped into something bigger than you, it is a feeling that you have created something new and emotionally important. And then you have walked into the light of artistic prose writing.”

I love this passage because you’ve exactly described that giddy, euphoric feeling of being satisfied with something you’ve written. This moment is the true reward of writing!
