The Creative Crunch

The last push...

What is that energy that kicks in when you are almost to the end of a project? I know that it is attributed to adrenalin. Scientifically, I'm sure that's the answer, but I call it the Creative Crunch.

There's just something that happens when I get close to the end of a writing project that keeps me going beyond the limit of belief. It happened this week. I finished a manuscript. After talking with a colleague, I decided to redesign the look of it -- you know, increase white space, etc.

Wha? What kind of a silly thing is that to do when you've already read and worked on the manuscript until you have smudges to the elbows and keyboard imprints on your cheeks and forehead?

It's the kind of silly thing that we do as writers. It's important to work beyond capacity and come out unscathed on the other side. It makes you believe in the magic of the Creative Crunch.
