I’ve been on this blog for a little over a week or so and I have to say, I love it. It’s great to get to connect with all you other writers out there. If you’re like me, you know that connecting with normal people (I use the term “Normal” loosely) can be daunting. Mostly because we have problems turning off our synergitic nature. Not really sure what I mean?
Picture talking to someone at a party or social event. They begin to rant on about their life and then you find yourself escaping out the backdoor of your thoughts, running down the alley of your mind. You make note of the tattered edges of the table cloth covering the round stained wood you sit at while the person continues to talk. Then, you gently slide your hand over the fabric. You thought the fabric was made of silk, but instead it’s just typical cloth. You remember to keep this self interaction you had in mind for later for some sort of character environment placement as you scramble back up the alley and dive through the backdoor just as the person stops talking. A part of you may have heard the conversation and you may be able to continue on without skipping a beat unless they ended it with question. Then, your screwed.
It’s just hard for us to turn off the writer gene. It’s ok though because now I’m in a place where people can relate to me (hopefully). People that are not writers just don’t understand the detail we grab from reality.
So thanks everyone. Thanks for interacting with me and making your blog so I know I’m not the only one. Thanks for stopping by. Follow me and like me please! I’ll be sure to stop by your blog and see what your synergy has put together!
