Does a writer’s mind ever turn off?

Posted in General with tags , , , , on March 23, 2017 by Kate Jack

Well, in a word, no!

It seems to me that the musical score: Flight of the bumble bee  perfectly describes a writer’s thoughts. Frantic, scurrying about, always on the move, are also equally suitable metaphors to describe an author’s thought processes. 

From the moment I wake up, to the time I go to sleep, I keep thinking about the books I’ve already written, or my current work in progress. If not that, then I’m looking for fresh marketing strategies, ways to create new story lines and characters – on and on and on. Everything else, such as getting dressed, going to work, eating, drinking and sleeping are all done on autopilot.

Talking about seeking out inspiration for new story lines, anything’s fair game: overheard conversations, unusual names, places seen from the train or bus, news stories, and even people’s faces. The outside world is an endless resource for such things. A writer’s brain is hot wired to pick up anything that can be used as a writing tool and will home in on an opportunity to gather material like an Exocet missile 🙂

So far I’m not actually hearing voices, but the day may come when I will literally explode, as my brain overloads and then deflates like a balloon 😀
