Creativity or Insanity?

There are times when I get writing that I am completely lost to whatever is going on around me, friends, time, movies, etc. There are times when I am writing that I don't know what has happened, how much I've written.

Last night I got so inspired I started writing sitting on the couch in the living room of my apartment. Eventually I moved into my room and lay on the bed while a movie played on the tv. I continued writing through the movie and when the movie ended I put another one on and continued to write. I wasn't getting tired I just kept writing. I don't remember what happened in the movies I don't' even know what time it was when I finally went to bed. I felt the compelling urge to continue writing I just had to keep writing. It got to the point where I knew I had to stop writing so I could get some sleep so I wrote all the ideas I had for the current piece I was working on so I wouldn't forget anything.

I get into such a state that I don't know whether I am insane or being creative. I just know that when I woke up this morning I had nearly 10 pages in a notebook filled. Am I creative or insane?
