I'm drawing a blank, but I hear voices

Last night as I was falling asleep, I had an epiphany. It would have made a great blog post and probably changed my life forever...if only I could remember it. I even remember thinking, "Get up and write it down." That's the last thing I remember.

Yeah, one of those.

Nano report:
Yesterday--No writing. At all. Not because I'm stumped, but because I stayed on my couch all day wrapped in a blanket watching Audrey Hepburn movies. Not really sick, but not well either.

Today--I'm going to the best friend in the world's house. To write. We worked it out so our 4 year olds can play, and we are going to ignore each other and get some much needed work done. What a blessing friends of this kind are, and very rare. We'll visit too of course, over lunch and such, but our goal is to accomplish specific goals.

Mine is at least 4000 words. It won't catch me up to where I should be, but I'll feel better about the progress and like the 50K is still reachable.

And now, another song that makes me think of writing every time I hear it. Please tell me I'm not the only one that finds great relief in knowing its ok that "I Hear Voices All the Time".
Verse lyrics

You could say I'm a little bit crazy, you can call me insane
Walkin' 'round with all these whispers runnin' 'round here in my brain
I just can't help but hear 'em man, I can't avoid it
I hear voices, I hear voices...

And just when I've lost my way, or I got too many choices
I hear voices, I hear voices...

Sometimes I try to ignore 'em, But I thank God for 'em
Cause they made me who I am...

Yeah, I hear voices all the time!


Ok, is that creepy? Maybe it's a little creepy, but true. What about you? Do you hear voices all the time?

  1. LOL! Yes, I do hear voices. My characters talk non-stop! But I've accepted that this is a good thing. Happy writing!

  2. I can hear those voices too (but I'll do my best to not admit to it again :P) *just kidding*
    Hope you had a great writing play-date!
