A choice between the devil and the deep blue sea: get sucked into proposal madness, or get stuck managing a project someone else designed with impossible goals and budget. Neither option is pretty. To get involved in writing research proposals for work means a sacrifice several days of personal life to each proposal, a mad fit of writing outside office hours, under pressure of clock and page count. It is not an episode of creative writing proposal madness is something else. The alternative, managing the impossible project, just spreads the same volume of pain out over a much longer period.
