I've been thinking about my writing, all types of writing. The thing is, writing is what keeps me going, and what works best for me, ("my best fix") is a novel or at least a children's book. If I write a blog post the 'buzz' disappears really soon, especially if no one reads it and that happens a lot. Secondly, if I write a short fan fic or original story it lasts a little longer. If I write a long fan fic or original story that I'm happy about it lasts longer and as I mentioned above, a novel or at least a whole book lasts even longer. Of course, if no one buys the book or reads my long story, the effect fades sooner, but even if I'm the only one who reads anything I have written (fiction, not blog posts) I usually enjoy it to some extent. Reading a really good book works about the same.
