"Writers" High - Keep Those Endorphins Coming!
"Writers" Zone- More Pleasurable Than...?
OK OK I know what you are thinking - what in the heck is she writing about now? Writing is better than sex?? How can that be? And why make a hub about it? Well I know you writers know exactly what I am talking about - THE ZONE.
The ZONE is a place that I know I'm in once the words start flowing out of my brain like fiery little ballistic firecrackers . All of a sudden people dim, noises dim, all focus becomes the words that are shooting out my brain in manic little rants. A pleasurable sensation with no pain settles over me...yes just like you know what...and all of a sudden I feel good and my writing is flowing like molten lava.
I know you writers know what I mean ...
It's that magical place we writers head to every once in a while - where everything we write is attached to some unseen creative cosmic force, pushing the words right out of our heads and onto paper - laptops - whatever medium is around. And the reasons for that feel good feeling? (which yes kind of feels like that other feeling we get when we are you know whatting)
IT'S CALLED ENDORPHINS.
Endorphins Make Us Feel Good
Endorphin's are those things in our body that get released when we feel good (also released during that other thing) And when you are feeling good, those little endorphin's rev up, flow through your body to give you a good sensation (playing sports can also rev those little endorphin's up too) Writing today is what's making me feel good, and since my husband is gone and he left me all by my lonesome with my laptop....
Seriously though, this is not to be a sexual hub in any way. My laptop is surely no replacement for my husband ... Although.....
And the pleasures of writing cannot even be compared to the pleasures of you know...well...
I don't know. I'm feeling pretty good today, the Zone is here and the husband isn't so may the endorphin's rage and the words flow...

Pain Relieving Endorphins- Released While Writing
Just so you will all take me seriously today here is a brief description of endorphins:
Endorphins are the body's natural pain medication hormones. Endorphins (en-dor-fins), when they're released, make us feel better, improve our mood, increase pleasure, and minimize pain. There are some good ways, and bad ways, to increase endorphins.
So those little pain relieving endorphins are what's making me feel pain free today. Now whether the endorphins are making me write more today or the writing is whats creating the endorphins- who knows? All I can attest to is the fact that I've had a lousy day with a horrible headache and a body ache and all of a sudden I feel great after writing! Almost all the aches and pains are gone and the headache vanished!
Dr. Endorphin has saved the day!
(And is writing really better than sex?)
