You know how sugar is addicting. Oh come on, it's time to admit it to yourself: sugar is a drug! So, we got that straightened out, you also know how love is addicting too. Well, that's how I have felt for a while. Hence why I have been AWOL for the past few weeks. I haven't done anything on the internet - no email, twitter, Facebook, blog, nothing!
Why would I do this or feel this way? Is it that I have a new love and if I do isn't that cheating on my husband. Well, the answer is yes and no. Yes I have a new love, but no I am not cheating on my husband. It's my book or more to the point the couple in my book.
I know it's sad and I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but it's true. When they are happy, I am happy. When they are sad I am sad. And when they are in that puppy love/honeymoon/lust phase of a relationship, I feel it too.
I have written other book/stories before but I haven't been as connected to the couple before. I think I wrote a previous post several weeks ago on this. At one point I thought I was becoming crazy, obsessed with nonexistent people. Perhaps most writers are this way, I hope so because if not than maybe I am going crazy.
I am getting towards the end of my book which makes me happy (I can come up for air) and sad (I will miss them). It's time for me to move on, but not for long. Of course I am starting to obsess about a continuation of their story. I wonder if I will ever be able to let them go.
