(I wrote this response out and then the whole site went down. Let's see if I can say the same thing again.)

This is fascinating (there is no way to say that without sounding either like Mr. Spock or like a patronizing jerk, so you just have to accept that I find anything about the writing journey fascinating. Also, while in that mode, thanks for sharing).

I had considerable writing down-time in my 20s and 30s, I think due to lack of a writing community around me. Getting online and finding the right people to be with solved that. There was this round-robin Harriet Vane novel, more than a decade ago, and somehow I haven't stopped since - except, I will note, briefly when my usually-mild depression got out of whack enough for me to try an anti-depressant. And then I couldn't write at all until I stopped taking it (there were other issues, too, like not being able to stay awake). I can write through depression just fine (alarmingly well, actually) but the drugs killed either the impulse or the ability. A highly variable phenomenon, obviously (but if I ever have to go the chemical route again I'll need to shop around).

I am glad your puppies are breathing!! Mm, puppies.
