The experience reminds me of vomiting. I vomit words 1-1,000. Then I feel so sick, I vomit 1001-1500. The gory glummy stuff gets choked back, stalled while I sweat. Oops, I vomit words 1500-2700. Then, in a last fit of disgust, I quickly vomit the words that will fulfill my goal.

My stomach settles, while my brain mushes together some thoughts about what to eat, what to watch.

The next day, I start fresh; I don’t dare look at the spew on the page before I begin gagging.
