Obsess Much?

So I have lots of irons in the fire and have lost my motivation.  It's just temporary, I know that.  I go through this every now and then.  It's like creativity just stops flowing, a blockage in my brain. Quilting stops, writing stops, it all stops.  I'm obsessing over a new book, well new to me.  I'm on book 'S' of the Sue Grafton series. 

When I start reading a good book and start getting into it I can't do anything else but read.  Lunch, before work, after work, after dishes.....or instead of dishes.  The problem with this is I usually finish the book in about two days......depending on if it's a weekend or a week day.  (A girl's gotta work.....well this girl does anyway.)  And......blocked.......all creativity stops and brain can't get past the book.........until it's done.

Hey maybe, subconsciously, that's why I obsess over it.  I know I won't be able to think of or concentrate on anything else so I hurry up and try to get it done!  Yeah....that's it.......yeah!

Phsycologists out there.........anyone?

Don't delve any deeper than that though, it could be scary, you'd be scared for life I'm sure.  I'm just sayin....

So now I have to get this book finished so I can move on with my creativity.  EXCEPT.....dun dun duuuunnn...I forgot the dumb thing at work!  AAAHHHHGGGG!  Pain and agony!  How could I?  Now no book until LUNCH tomorrow!  Are you guys hearing me?  LUNCH TOMORROW!  This bites.

I suppose I could get the writing going tonight...........blockage removed.........seriously.
