What is the Opposite of Writer's Block?

Seriously. What is it? Because I think I have it…Lately, instead of having that doomey feeling of sitting down at a keyboard and not having any shot of inspiration of where to go next, I have too many ideas! As it stands right now, I am working on 6 different writing projects!

This is insane. I just want you all to know that I am aware that this is insane…and I am working very hard on my time management skills to ensure that I actually spend an appropriate amount of time working on each project. You know, maybe in one day I’ll spend a couple of hours on one script, and then afterwards I’ll have a refresher read through of my webseries, and then go from there.

I feel pretty overwhelmed, but I have never been this inspired with stories and ideas before, that I figure I should take advantage of it! I mean, I think the only thing that could be considered more insane than trying to stomp out this many projects at once would be not exploring the potential of each idea in the moment that it strikes you!

For a quick example of what a Taylor-writing project looks like…(and this is a few years old now…so, you know, don’t set your bar too high! Also, I don’t have bangs anymore.) here is a short that I wrote for my demo reel in college. It is a little comedy ditty inspired by the style of Modern Family and my fear of toasters. Hope you enjoy!
