Newest Obsession

I sat down at the computer fully intent on writing something tonight. I ended up blog-surfing again instead. I wonder if it is because I am finding part three of my novel hard to write. Maybe it is a way for me to avoid writing. I don’t know.

All I know is that I am enjoying discovering new blogs. I love reading the thoughts of other writers and posting comments. It is has become my latest obsession. I seems like it is part of my personality to get obsessed with things. I don’t know why I do it, but I think it is something I have always done.

I have gone through intense periods in my life where my focus seemed to be extremely narrow. I have grown and evolved over the years and I think that I have come a long way. I tend not to let myself get as worked up as I used to but sometimes things get a hold of me and I just can’t seem to let go.

Maybe, this obsession has just to do with my situation right now. I am taking advantage of having Internet in the place I am staying at. I am using the Internet a lot more than I have in the past. I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I’m reading and learning things and I am enjoying myself. I just need to remember to take some time to work on my novel or it will never get finished.

  1. I think I’ve got an obsessive personality too. I go through phases with different things; books, artists, songs. It’s pretty strange, really.

  2. Thanks for your comments. Is it strange if we both do it? Seriously though, I don’t think we are abnormal. I think everyone has an obsessive personality to some extent, some of us more so than others. I don’t necessarily think it is a bad thing. I just think that we need to try and be open-minded and not have a narrow focus on life.
