I read that thingy about authors being crazy/stupid for wanting to write, and it said that writing is no fun, like building a house, and I thought, well, I built a house and I thought it was very fun. Lots of hard work! Many times I hated it! But all the time, even when I hated it completely, I was having the time of my life. And I thought, maybe, for creative people, it's the same way. It's the hardest most aggravating boring exhausting thing, and it's so fun you never want to stop. Is it thus for you? I rather hope so.

Absolutely spot on. Writing American Gods was like that: even when I hated it completely I was having the time of my life.

It's like that for me for everything I do. Gaming, reading, writing, painting, cooking. I think it is one of the reasons I don't have a clear cut objective in my life.
