I can tell it's been too long since I've last written anything when my mind starts building stories without conscious effort, and this has been happening to me a lot lately. In the middle of conversations, while I'm reading, while driving, while working. Snippets of ideas for future Madison novels, new and interesting characters, short stories, novels. The whole works.
It's been nearly two weeks since I've had time to work on Madison, and then it was still just editing, not writing. Creativity is bubbling up, and there's no off switch.
Which is exactly how I like it. It's time to squeeze in a little writing.
