WWMCD?

WWMCD?…What would my characters do? It’s those voices in my head again. No, they’re not telling me to dig up the rose bed and bury my neighbor’s ugly mailbox. It’s the other voices, those of my characters having dialogue about what is streaming into the gob behind my eyeballs. I write fiction, both contemporary and historical. My characters won’t go away. They follow me around and insert themselves into some of the more curious things in life. I used to be amused but then I got wise and started using it to my advantage. At least for the contemporary crew.
Great fun and a great help for my writing. I’m just happy they fit so neatly between my ears, they wouldn’t all fit into the Mini Cooper for the ride to Armetta’s.

  1. Yep, all those clowns along for the free ride and wreaking havoc with all the space they occupy. It’s a wonderful thing to hear that you’ve been able to get an edge of leverage with their presence. The alternative is that someone gives you a room in the laughing academy for a few months until you swear you’re no longer hearing voices.
    Never admit it, Mike. Deny, deny, deny.

  2. Mike, came here as a result of your kind decision to follow my scribblings over on Learning from Dogs. Thank you. Must dip into your writings and listen to your voices; mine are becoming too familiar! Best wishes, Paul.
