How silly we must look

I wonder what other people think when I'm writing.  I just realized, as I was typing a paragraph, that I was mimicing my MC's actions, trying to find the right word to describe her movements.  Thank goodness no one was here to watch.

I know I do this often.  In the midst of writing, I'll make a face, shrug my shoulders, or pace the living room acting out a scene to gather the most detail I can. 

I'd love to be a fly on the wall and watch myself write just to see how goofy I must look :)


  1. Haha! Too funny. I'll have to pay attention see if I'm doing that!

  2. I can't tell you how happy you've just made me!!! I do this all the time:) SO much so that I'll realize it and start laughing at myself.
    I've found it helps me ccome up with the words I need too just by acting out the part...hehe

  3. Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one!!

  4. I decided to branch out and write beyond my writing room so I went to Border's. I believe many of them thought I was crazy or had multiple personalities... add in the that I wear headphones and often time sing out load... yeah... it was.... innnteresting!
