Writing as an addiction

by Lisa A. Yeager

I even feared that my blood would freeze if I didn’t write, so I asked around and studied other writers’ experiences. Addiction may be described as the ongoing use of a temper-changing substance or behavior, no matter the adverse consequences. Alternatively, it can be described as a neurological impairment leading to such behaviors”. Can the “destructive results” of Writing be categorized with the ones of substance abuse? Of course, there are negative writing results, including the pressure of frame and mind from prolonged Writing and lack of organization, while he shuts himself in to put in Writing. But are those negative effects?

Strangely, Writing is not an easy element to do: Long, solitary hours – an awful lot of time staring at the blank page, waiting, perhaps praying to The Muse or whomever for a proposal, and seeking out suitable phrases that appear to play Tom and Jerry inside the head. Worse, Writing doesn’t seem to make lots feel economical because a tiny percentage of writers make money properly. In this example, the addiction prospers in defiance of the unusual sense. Below is what they say about their addiction: The first using Caroline Peckham, bestselling myth writer, is fun, however proper. She is hooked on Writing, as are Stephen King, Maxim Uzoatu, and Mike Awoyinfa.


Caroline Peckham: As I start penning this, I’m ravenous. But earlier than breakfast, I desired to get this blog post up as it’s been whizzing around my mind earlier than I went to sleep a final night and within the few seconds after I woke up these days (ok, I had a lie-in, don’t choose me!) I am so sure I am enthusiastic about Writing. I realize this due to the fact (simply) it comes before food and is consequently now at least as essential in my list of things to do these days. (Alright, I wouldn’t die if I stopped writing, however….May my soul?

Too a long way? Probably…)

This, I think (and wish), is a great factor. Before I started writing my e-book collection, I’d never found anything to write down that I became so obsessed with—at least in terms of drive and resolution. I will do anything it takes to finish this series and get it out to the world! Because there’s a burning need inside me to do so.

Call it what you will: an obsession, a calling, the onset of some psychotic episode…however, whatever it can be, I can’t ignore it! Today is one of the first days the UK has had heat weather in months. And I’ve got multiple days off (fortunate me!); do you understand what I’m doing? I intend to sit in my flat and write all day long. To be truthful, I live in a top-floor flat with a massive sash window to my left, and the solar is shining through, so I’m technically sunbathing properly.

Writing is addictive in its many paperwork. I only started a blog some weeks ago, and now I am thinking about what to blog and am continuously checking in on what my fellow bloggers are writing!

Anyway – I admit it, I’m a writing addict. There! I started it!

Maxim Uzoatu: He is a hot and joyful young guy with a crowd of pals and lovers; however, locked somewhere in a nook of man’s mind is the photo of Maxim, the Poet, as a person who lives with the spirits. I am speaking about Maxim Uzoatu, journalist and poet. His words are deep and nonsecular.

“There are some demons inside me that have to get out, or I die!”
  • Well, Maxim is hooked on Writing!
  • Mike Awoyinfa: He is a celebrated journalist, biographer, and columnist.

Mike is closely addicted to Writing. He says proudly: “Of course, I am addicted to Writing. It is what I stay for. It is what keeps me alive. It’s my opium. It is my religion. It’s my oxygen! It keeps me happy like a drug addict but, in my case, an addition to phrases.

Graham Greene: “Writing is a shape of therapy; once in a while, I am surprised how all those who no longer write, compose, or paint can manipulate to escape the insanity, the melancholia, the inherent panic fear. In a human circumstance.” Gloria Steinem: “Writing is the simplest element that, once I do it, I don’t feel I ought to be doing something else.” My Experience: Writing keeps my blood circulating, preventing it from making blood freeze in my veins. Outside work hours, when I have time for myself, I mentally write or pound away on my PC.

No matter how tedious it has to be, Writing is a relaxing possibility for me. When I tell folks who realize my behavior, I am on vacation, they ask, what book is coming? I got this from Malinda, a contributor to the problem on the Internet. Interesting! She wrote: “I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I Never touched drugs. Not a gambler. My addiction? Writing. I’m a word nerd! Well, to different writers, sure, I’m ordinary. But you might call me a nerd if you don’t write out of the preference instead of the need to do so.
