It’s a beautiful day today. My family have all just popped up to the park for a run around, my house looks like it has just been spewed from the hell-mouth and all I want to do is write my blog.
I’ve always had an ongoing internal dialogue but, largely, I’ve managed to push it away during normal working hours, engaging with the real world and only giving in on solitary drives or long baths.
Blogging has changed all of that. It has amplified my thoughts, allowing them to crash through the firewall and interrupt every activity. I fill scraps of paper with sentences or phrases so I don’t forget them, grab 10 minutes when everyone is otherwise engaged to purge myself and try and hold myself back from the keyboard. But the conversations keep piling up.
What’s the answer? Do I keep going until I burn out or get bored? Will that time come?
What about you- are you a selfish blogger? Can you take it or leave it or are you just the tiniest bit obsessive?
