What are your obsessions? Do they help you or hold you back?
I'm obsessed with books. I have too many, but always want more. I gave some thought this week to buying a reader -- a Kindle or Nook or something. But, I have so many books that are waiting to be read, I'm not sure why in the world I would want to buy a device that would make it easier to buy more books. After all, do I have enough years left to read all of them? Don't know the answer to that.
Now, I'm not advocating that people stop buying books -- especially the books that I've written. By all means, buy them, buy them, buy them... I'm just saying that even though I'm not to the point where I need a program to help curb my obsession, I'm lucid enough to warn you that I might need a little intervention some time in the future... you know, if I can't find my way through all the piles of books to the front door... that sort of thing.
For now, I'll face my books... one page at a time.
So... what's your creative obsession?
