This post is for all of the writers out there. It is 11:15pm. I should be in bed. I really need the sleep. The house is quiet and my husband and kids are all fast asleep. I am downstairs. I couldn’t resist. Sitting on the sofa with my computer on my lap. Typing quietly and quite contentedly spilling thoughts from my head.
I have a confession. I have an addiction. I love to write. It haunts my days and taunts my nights. All I want to do is find a quiet corner. I’ll spend my time typing out my thoughts. Churning out some stories that are dancing in my head.
I stumbled on this desire to write by accident. I went through a rough patch and was so overwhelmed with emotion that I had to get it out of my system. Basically I spewed my thoughts all over a computer page and became hooked in the process.
Now my days are not complete unless I can steal away some time to type up a few thoughts. The biggest problem I face is that once I start writing, I don’t want to stop. It feels so freeing to get my thoughts out with a few taps of the keyboard. I look at my computer longingly when I am unable to write thinking about how much I need to get done before I can get some writing in.
If I was rich, I think I’d be in trouble. I would be locked away at a beach house sitting on the deck with a cup of tea. Busy on the keyboard with the sea in front of me. The only sounds of seagulls and me, typing away, telling all of my secrets and dreams.
