Addicting

    I love fiction. I love stories. In fact, I get a buzz from it. Reading it, watching it, and thinking about it. All this came can come even from a 30 second advertisement.  I mean, I feel in a foggy state whenever I finish a great movie or a book. And after one book or movie, I just want MORE.
 
   So, as mechanical and silly as it seems, I try to pace myself.  I reward myself with bits of fiction for doing the things I know I should be doing.  Twenty minutes of getting ready for the day followed by one song.  Ten minutes of work before I check my blog stats.   When I do this, I am actually happier because I’m getting the real work done and I can enjoy the fun without guilt.

  1. I can totally relate...I get so absorbed in books and movies, that I almost need them in small doses.:) Both, books and movies, I must relate to a character to stayed interested for any length of time.

    My favorite book is "Shantaram". A book I do not think I will ever stop reading. I've read it several times. I also have it on cd and listen to it a little each night. I am obsessed with every character in the book. :) Have you read it?

    1. Tough questions. Novels, I guess. What about you?

    2. Novels :)
      Sometimes i notice a movie made from a book is not that detailed and interesting as it would be to read it complete in a novel.So may be that is one factor.

    3. I guess you're right. Take the Harry Potter movies for example. The book fans wouldn't relish much of the movie.
