OBSESSION- noun- the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire etc.

I have an obsession. I don’t mind admitting it, it’s not something to be ashamed of, I’m obsessed with the new book I’m working on. I have to imagine other authors feel the same way about their books in progress, at least I would hope they do. It is a wonderful feeling to want to sit down at the keyboard to tell a story, to develop characters, develop settings, and dialogue and…well you get the idea. I also have to imagine there are plenty of authors who find it frustrating and annoying and nothing but work, who suffer from writer’s block, or just have the stress of a deadline, or can’t seem to get that final edit just the way they want…I can imagine the frustration and anxiety and worries. Perhaps I have an advantage in that I have no deadlines, no one to answer to, that my writing is something I do for my own enjoyment and hopefully my readers enjoyment as well, but I am not constricted by someone else’s demands, my demands are my own.

It is a thriller, in case you were wondering, about identical twins. (Oh sure, the twin thing has been done before, but I promise you, it stands apart, on it’s own.)

I can’t wait to tell the story; I have a bit of an obsession…
