The Power of the "Send" button

Weight: x+18.6, are you kidding me?  Is this a prank?  Am I being punked here?  Scale: this is how it works.  When I exercise and don't eat candy and pizza, you say a LOWER number.  Got it?

As a writer, there's really no greater feeling than having just pressed "send" on an email with your script attached.  Even better when you've actually remembered amidst all of the excitement to actually attach the script!  I often have the elation to want to do everything all at once.  Sometimes, I want to watch every movie ever made while eating every food ever eaten while traveling to every place on earth!  Sadly, all of that is not possible.  But maybe you know the feeling.  Like when your senses are all off the charts at the same time, and your mind is going a mile a minute.

But this feeling doesn't just extend to writers.  There are a few times in life when you get an overwhelming feeling of relief from having sent an email.  Something said that needed saying.  Something that required you to really get your thoughts down on paper.  Something that you obsessed about until you finally resolved to just do it.  Click, sent.

I just sent an email like that.  Awesome.  There's no going back.
