CAUTION: WRITER THINKING

Writing can be dangerous!
Well not the actual writing part…
But the thinking, envisioning, and fantasizing part…
Unlike the physical part of writing…
When you’re seated writing on a pad or keyboard...
The thinking, envisioning, and fantasizing part…
Is worked up in the corridors of your brain…
Soundlessly plotting away…
Which leaves you free to do things…
Like drive on the highway…
Concocting a plot twist…
At 75 mph!
And then after about ten minutes…
You look around and go…
“Where in the hell am I?
Caution: Writer Thinking!
Or like when you’re putting on mascara…
With a wand that has hundreds of brisk bristles…
That could potentially blind you.
But deep in your brain cells…
Your envisioning which actor your hero looks like…
When—OW!—you just poked your eyeball!
Caution: Writer Thinking!
And then there’re times when you’re at a party…
And all you want to do…
Is find a corner and think of a name for your heroine…
But instead the most boring person in the world…
Has cornered you…
Telling you about one of their boring dreams…
When suddenly they ask you…
“So? What do you think it all means?”
Now you’re desperate...
Trying to figure out what they were saying…
And you realize you don’t have a clue…
However this is the guy who could promote your hubby.
So you laugh and say something stupid like…
“Wow, that’s really exciting.”
And he says, “I dreamt of dying! How is that exciting?”
Caution: Writer Thinking!
So for all those who live or work with a writer…
Or heaven forbid, are driving with a writer…
Be on the lookout for that glazed over fixed stare…
Because…
Caution: Writer Thinking!

Always, Em-Musing

Zoning out while a boring person talks to me - I did that even before I was a writer. Of course, now it's even worse.

LOL! I do that all the time. Good thing I can drive on auto-pilot.

My family says when I talk, I can jump from subject to subject with no seeming connect. I tell them there's connections, but if I explain, they don't see them. Must be Writer Thinking! :-)

I am sooo entertained by my thoughts. unfortunately they can also be crippling which is why I try to stay out of my own way and free my mind as much as possible. I remember being very young and spending 4 hour car rides working out the details of my adult home. I still do that, late at night when I wake or if I'm feeling out of control. The house has not changed in 50 years.
