Once I did a writing exercise where I was required to list my obsessions, whether they were things that I passionately loved or loathed. If I remember correctly, being aware of my obsessions was supposed to help guide my writing and make me more aware of recurring concepts and stuff in my stories. I can't find what I'd written in that old exercise, so I'm composing a new list of things I'm obsessed with.
What I passionately love: sunsets, wine and chocolate, good food, art, traveling, the company of loved ones, unsung heroes, super powers or extraordinary talents, delayed gratification, underdogs, random acts of kindness, karma, open-mindedness, and perceptiveness.
What I passionately loathe: post-nasal drip, waiting in long lines, being around negativity, bigotry, bullying, arrogance, people who dish it out but can't take it back, people who can be easily bought, abuse of authority, poor manners, being misunderstood, dishonesty, and injustice.
What are some of your obsessions? Tell me what you passionately love and loathe.
