I hope to see you there!

I've been doing some technical writing lately, marketing pieces for a company. Which has reminded me of what I don't like about myself when I'm writing. I'm a moody bastard! ;)

Granted, I'm a moody bastard when I'm NOT writing. But the creative process seems to draw out that side to a higher degree!

It reminds me of my teenage/early 20s when I would walk down to the walkway over the highway in the middle of the night and sit there writing poetry.

Sometimes in my black trenchcoat.

Oh yes, looking back - a long haired young guy in a trenchcoat out in the middle of the night, watching cars go by, close to an elementary school - clearly it was a MUCH different time that no one ever called the cops on me!

We always talk about what we love about writing- but what do you really NOT like about the process?

I tend to be a "one and done" writer. I write it and then immediately want feedback on it. Going back and editing always ends up annoying me and getting me out of the "zone". (Which is probably why I don't do more of it - because being able to edit your stuff and bouncing back after criticism is one of those *extremely* important things to have as a writer!!)

How do you deal of the emotions of when you write something and hand it to someone to read?
