Compulsion

3 Comments

I love this J.K. Rowling quote:

“Writing for me is a kind of compulsion, so I don’t think anyone could have
made me do it, or prevented me from doing it.”

I can definitely relate. Yesterday I uploaded Lover, Destroyer to Amazon. It’s awaiting approval. Almost as soon as I uploaded it, I started working on the sequel to Because Faery Godmonster.

I did this because I need some comedy this month. I have two sad anniversaries coming up, and I need to work on something simple and fun. I also did it because I simply can’t help it. As long as I’m not depressed, I have to write. Have to–it’s not a choice. It’s a need like sleeping or eating.

  1. Wonderful. I’m looking for light myself. I’m spending too much time reading and writing vampires and ritual killings. I need some love…a love story.

    • That sounds great! I would love to read a love story by you. (I love everything you write.) Yeah, my deceased cousin’s birthday is this month and my special “miscarriage” cat died last July. I’ve been dreading this month. Pox and Goss will keep me upbeat. I’ll slip into my emo Lycian’s skin next month.

      • Yes, we INFPs feel everything so intensely and then have to intuit what is really going on. It’s a journey. I will keep you in my thoughts and send light your way:)
