My name is Edie Weinstein and I am addicted to words. I read, write, eat, sleep, dream and breathe verbiage. It's been that way since I was a kiddo, toting around books like toys. Like any addict, I can't imagine giving up my 'drug of choice'. Fortunately for me, this habit doesn't cost me anything ..... except for the occasional bouts of insomnia when The Muse won't let me sleep since she is so busy feeding me inspiration as if it were the nectar of the Gods. Sweet and nourishing. Sustaining. Keeping me sane and vertical in the midst of the proverbial dark nights of the soul.
Earlier in the week, I had this experience and put the question out to the Facebook 'hive mind' for their input.
