I love writing – just wanted to get that out there. I also love doing crafts and cooking, but my dream is to write a novel; it’s an obsession of mine. And I probably would write a novel – if I could just put down a book long enough to write my own.
My biggest obsession is reading – I can’t get enough of it. I gobble books down like crazy. It’s somewhat of an addiction for me. I could cuddle up with a book all day, forgetting to eat, drink, do my chores – even write!
We have a problem. I try to stay in reality and prioritize – but there’s always some fantasy realm calling me, distracting me from my own work, encouraging me to drop everything and lose myself in the pages of a great story. I resist – for a time, anyway, but eventually I cave. In fact, I’m about to give in to the urge right now (better write fast!).
So I’m asking for advice; does anyone else have this problem? Know how to cure my serious case of reading mania?
