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.

addiction of writing. something we all share 🙂 and this addiction is a good thing no?

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 🙂

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!

Addicted indeed and you do wonders with it. Keep on doing it.

I am addicted to writing too 🙂 Loved how you expressed it 🙂

sulekkha · April 26, 2014 at 6:22 am

I am addicted too 🙂 Writers celebrate this addiction, well written, as always.

Shilpa Garg · April 26, 2014 at 10:48 am

Aha!! That's a WOW addiction!! Stay addicted to it, always 🙂 ♥ · April 26, 2014 at 11:08 am

It's OK to love writing, or to be committed to writing, but certainly not to be addicted to writing. Addiction of any sort is undesirable.

Prasanna Rao · April 26, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Ah, yes, the writing addiction is good one. That is what motivates me to blog, sometimes even sacrificing precious moments of sleep 🙂

Jyotsna Bhatia · April 26, 2014 at 2:46 pm

Yes, yes, yes.. Writing is indeed an addiction !! Good one Shailaja 🙂

Srilakshmi Indrasenan · April 26, 2014 at 5:33 pm

I knew it… W for Writing… you write brilliantly!! 😀

susan · April 26, 2014 at 6:09 pm

Aren't we all addicted? Missed you last week on yeah write 😀

Psych Babbler · April 27, 2014 at 7:58 am

It's a great addiction to have… 🙂

Sunila Vig · April 27, 2014 at 9:37 am

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 🙂

Sunila Vig · April 27, 2014 at 9:39 am

V well written Shailaja about that which calls out to us so strongly, to our writing again and again:)

vishalbheeroo · April 27, 2014 at 12:25 pm

Great take Shailaja and written is one addiction we cannot live without:)
