I caught “Doc Martin” fever in the spring of 2013; and by summer, I looked into the mirror and said, “My name is Karen, and I am a DM addict.” In September, I took the first step in the healing process. I created a blog to talk about the addiction and help others similarly afflicted.
No cure exists, but I am learning a few things.
- I am learning that the internet is not a superhighway, but a parallel universe. The wired world has brought visitors from more than 90 countries to my site. Thanks to these visitors, I’m learning the language of this universe — “Feedburner,” “Delicious,” “Google juice.”
- I am learning to write FanFiction. “Christmas Memories,” my first ever short story, will be followed by “The Biscuit Lady” on New Year’s Day.
- I am learning how kind people can be in their comments. “Cool text dude, keep up the very good fiction, just shared this with the mates.”
- I am learning that when a great show like “Doc Martin” — starring the amazing Martin Clunes and featuring a superb cast — touches the soul, you should just go with the flow and embrace the addiction.
