Just Jot It January 24th – Compelled – We’re almost there!


Are you ever compelled to do something? Do you get an overwhelming desire to do something? I know I do.

I’m compelled to write. For as long as I can remember, I feel the need to write everything down, whether just a jot or note, pages of words in essays, poems, thoughts, daily happenings, and lists. Mostly, I use pen and paper, and then type it out if I share on this blog.

I enjoy being compelled to write, every day, in one way or another. I have found, though, that it takes up a lot of time, which in turn, means I don’t get to the other things I want to get done. I wish there were more hours in the day to do it all.

I feel compelled to read, and respond to every blog I follow, and those that follow mine. I try my best to keep up with all the notices I get on email. I feel bad if I have to skip any, as I know it takes that person’s time to post on their blog. But, I still want to get to everyone. Is that even possible?

Could compulsion be another way of saying addiction? I think so. I enjoy writing, and if I’m compelled to do it, or addicted to it, that’s all right with me. 🙂


What are you compelled to do?
