Just A Question

When you're relaxing and daydreaming a story you're the star of, do you ever discover you're daydreaming in words and sentences? And do you ever find yourself hitting the mental backspace key to re-word a sentence?

14 bonus scribbles:

Yup.

I call it a "do-over." ;-)

I've revised my dreams! So funny. Mine are in pictures, not words, but I'll think, "No, I didn't like that," and go back and redream it a different way.

Jennifer McKenzie 2/04/2008 09:32:00 AM  

Yep. I also see scenes and write them entirely in my head before they get to the computer.
Where they then morph into something TOTALLY different.
LOL.

You mean you're not supposed to do that?

spyscribbler 2/04/2008 02:39:00 PM  

LOL, Erica. That's good!

Oh, Edie, you too? I'd love to dream in pictures, though.

Oh, Jennifer, me, too! I write the whole thing out, but half the time I forget it. And they end up different, too!

LOL, Bernita!

LOL, Susan. I was wondering.

hahaha omg yes! This must be why my daydreams go through "drafts" I didn't ever stop to think that this might be weird, or a "writer thing" lol

Angie 2/04/2008 04:54:00 PM  

Yep. You have to get the wording right, don't you? :)

Totally. Just today, in fact.

The answer is YES!!! I also enjoy a personal soundtrack. I believe that when people wake up in the morning that the lights come on and a title appears somewhere...in my case the title would read: THE STEWART SHOW!!! Starring Stewart Sternberg. Of course, each person is the star of their own fantasy. Some day I'll tell you about the fantasy I have that includes silly string and a spatula.

Oh, yes. Definitely!

How was the writing marathon?

lainey bancroft 2/05/2008 08:37:00 AM  

So far it's unanimous. =P

Ello 2/05/2008 07:31:00 PM  

I don't dream in words, only in pictures. I will do scenes in my head like movies and then I'll scream cut and reshoot it if I didn't like it the first time.

My daydreams always find my tongue "subvocalizing" as the linguists say. People say I talk too much. But yes, I do this all the time.
