We had a very lively discussion at our Writers Club meeting last night that was more interesting than I had perceived it would be when the meeting's agenda was given to us. Can writing be an addiction with some people or is it just a strong drive to put our thoughts on paper rather than speak of them verbally? Some argued that indeed writing can be an addiction with some people. It could be classified the same as alcoholism, drug addiction or habitual twitching or blinking. I know that I will sit in my teaching class room and jot down notes that could fit into my the story that I am presently writing; however. I will also invision dialogue of my characters as I am driving but not to the point that I am being distracted from my driving. I most certainly do not classify these habits as an addiction. Can writing be addiction with some individuals?
