Is writing a job? A passion? A hobby? Or something else entirely?
For me it’s an addiction, a full-out gotta do it or die kind of thing. Yup. And it is one that I have no intention of treating. Recovery would be a real shame, wouldn’t it?
Although I still occasionally drink wine (or bourbon or tequila or Buttershots OMG I love Buttershots!) and eat chocolates while writing, my most powerful drug is still the writing itself. It is truly addicting to feel the story unfold and follow the people while they fight for their dreams. Just like picking up a good book and not being able to put it down until you run out of pages, the writing can be just as grab-you-by-the-heart-and-never-let-go enthralling. With my addictive personality, this turns nearly every book into a series.
Are you addicted to writing? Do you write under the influence? Stand up and share your addictions!
