Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog on how Meeting a New Idea is Kind of Like Falling in Love With Someone for the First Time.
It’s difficult to explain what it feels like to someone who’s never experienced it themselves.
The way reality slows down or stops the moment you see it.
The way your chest twists and spasms and your stomach flutters.
How good it feels to be in the presence of something you never want to distance yourself from.
How you could just drop everything right here, right now, if it meant you could spend every moment, awake or asleep, with it.
This, at least to some degree, happens to every writer when they stumble upon a new idea. We tremble with excitement, we feel dizzy, we wonder how we’re ever going to be able to accomplish anything again, because of this new obstacle that feels a lot like a blessing.
It feels a lot like falling in love with someone for the first time. Whether it’s happened to you or not.
