I concur with Sammons, as I feel the same way!
Apart from the fact that I was pretty good at reading from an early age, and learning English language and literature; I think that when I really got into reading sci-fi and horror stories in the 70's, it piqued the creative area of my mind, and I played about with writing short stories while at school.
My hyperactive imagination has grown ever worse over the years, and I come up with far too many ideas, especially where my Holmes plays are concerned. Apaprt from the 6 completed ones, I now have 179 other plotlines to play with!!
Should keep me busy! And that's without the multitude of novels and filmscripts I have tucked away to work on!
In a way Smudge, I think that those of us BTZers who write, enjoy it because it gives us a route to escape from 'reality' and the day-to-day routine that sometimes drives us round the twist! Plus, it gives those of us who enjoy writing, a chance to show others what we're made of!
With me it's pure farcical lunacy!
