Whatever it's proper term may (or should) be, I am afflicted!  Currently researching two short stories, which may reach novella-length, and three screenplays; but I rarely have the time to keep the momentum that's come alive in a given sitting for it.  If anyone has any time that they don't need, please hand it over!  In fact, I wish there was a different kind of "timeshare" that we could use here for that purpose...

Depending if my work is any good, I call it word vomit.

hmm, yeah I also use word vomit for when I can't tell if it's good or not, but if I keep having (what I think are) amazing ideas, maybe braingasm? For me, I usually just call it caffeine.

and rhamnach, your icon is magical.

I definitely have an inspiration monsoon every once in a while as well.

Not as often as I wish it would happen but beggars can't be choosers, I guess. :)
