Yes sadly I find other people not interested in my book ideas. In fact when I start telling one of my stories they look at me with a bored expression.
No worries…you get used to it after a while. Now I keep my stories to myself.
I feel a slight disconnection with other people – please don’t think I am a terrible person but they seem so happy living in normalcy. Following the same routine day in day out, getting older and older. My own life is also somewhat mundane, so I should not judge. Anyway I rise above it all by daydreaming myself into places and situations more thrilling than my own. I don’t think it’s such a bad thing – look where it got J K Rowling.
Story ideas pop into my head endlessly. I can’t keep them out. It has always been that way since I was young.
When I was little I used to get in trouble for day dreaming, but have learn to curb it somewhat in adulthood – one needs to stay focused at work, or one might find themselves fired.
Lucy Montgomery’s character Anne Shirley said she liked getting into bed at night so she could day dream. I agree it’s a good time to faze out as it doesn’t mess with anyone else.
My book is a thriller by the way. I use people I know, including my good self, plus characters from books, TV shows and movies to create well rounded personalities.
