The writing Bug

I had this dream.  Many of my dreams turn into stories that I have to write down.  I read this amazing study about how cursive writing leads to a more creative writing process so I decided to hand write this whole story.  It had been amazing!  I don't get stuck as often, I don't have to wait for a puter to boot up and my hand hurts.  BUT the excitement of creating something new is ever in my mind and I seem to always want to write.  Maybe the cursive experiment really works and my brain's working better.  OR maybe the story is really cool and I've hit on something grand.  OR it's the feeling of smooth crisp paper.  I'm charged up and willing to get finger cramps so I can continue to touch my hands to real paper.  I think I'm old fashioned, but next I want to try quill and ink.  Why not?  The very atmosphere lends itself to steampunk tales of pirates and distopian myths about the end of the human race.
I also have been watching piles and piles of Dr. Who.
It could be that.
