This might be a very straightforward question. I am looking for a word to describe an author who is going through a very creating phase and is churning out a lot of work. I am unable to recollect a very commonly used adjective for this. Usage might look like:
From 1905 to 1908 he published several short stories and novels. He was a very _______ writer during that time.

prolific writer, artist, or composer produces a large number of works.
