Creative Obsessions


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?

I am obsessed with collecting cookbooks. The most senseless part is that most of what I cook I come up with myself. I am not one that loves following recipes. I love looking at the photos and getting ideas from them. I could easily just print recipes online but it just isn't the same. Kind of like reading a book on a Nook or Kindle instead of lovingly holding it in your hands.

Junk! Doo-dads, scraps, pretty ribbons, old furniture, broken things, shiny objects...stuff i want to "someday" recycle, reuse, repurpose. Does THAT ever happen...hmmmm. But I do get creatively inspired by it!

Beth here! I am with you! I collect books! I am always ordering something from Amazon. Have thought a Kindle but there is just something comforting about going in my reading area and seeing all the books sitting there waiting to be read over and over again. Then picking one up and sitting there reading it -- turning each page....don't know if I could get use to just pushing a button to see the next page....doesn't seem right to me....
