An addiction too strong

An addiction too strong

There were whispers of it. I dismissed it at first. I told myself it couldn’t be true.
I mean, it’s not like it has been happening forever. Or has it?
Or maybe it has. Then my mind went into a panic. Could it be possible? 
Then, it was time to experiment.  Consciously, I stayed away. I made an effort not to even look in its direction.
But the clarion call was imperative and clear. I couldn’t resist it much longer.
With an itch in my being and a craving in my heart, I returned to my addiction: 
My writing.

  1. W for Wow 🙂 Good that you're addicted to writing 🙂 Writing is indeed addictive, and if you have even a small seed of it in your mind, it shall surely germinate and grow into a tree 😉 Lovely that you obeyed the addiction 🙂

  2. Some addictions are good! Or are they? Hmm….let me go back and write out this dilemma…maybe then I will know more 🙂
    Writing as a way of thinking – that's what I like the most.
    A wonderful post, Shailja!

  3. Beloo I see your point- addictions good and bad have similar roots within us and then its up to us to balance the cravings that demand their pound of flesh and we writers, fitness addicts (I'm both) can crave for satisfaction as much as a gambler or some other such 🙂 Interesting stuff 🙂
