After a few weeks of near-daily meetings, I got a week of uninterrupted development work and will likely have another one too. How good it feels! Writing code is so much more satisfying than talking and listening. And it feels a lot more productive.
I do realize that writing code is not the only thing that will make a product successful. Client meetings (and several other things) are just as necessary. And yet, writing code seems like real work and everything else just seems like support. I wonder if that is a necessary result of choosing a particular specialization and being passionate about it.
