Sometimes, jeff noel, The Blog Whisperer, Gets Writer’s High

Some things are hard to explain (like this Suomi ski lift "chair")

jeff noel, America’s Work Life Balance expert, has writer’s high this morning. It’s similar to runner’s high. But very different from drug-induced highs (smirk). It’s a feeling (in running, and in writing) where the participant gets lost in the rhythm of the activity and reaches a place were the motions are effortless and pleasurable.

  1. Congratulations on attaining your writer’s high. Would you say that when you are on a high that you are balanced? And the words just spread out from your fingertips.

  2. Not sure what you mean by balanced. It happens after hours of writing, during a day off, a weekend, or holiday day. Without pressure to be somewhere or do something else, the writing, as you say Patty, flows from the fingertips. Effortless. Inspired. Astonishing. Fun. Enlightening. Creative. Unstoppable….

  3. By balanced I mean life and it’s nuances are attended to. I’m not being pulled beyond the thoughts that fire through my fingertips. Being present to the words being written before me. Writing, then, is in a very peaceful place. Does that make sense?
