Mind on Fire


I've gone manic in the mind's eye. Entire stories are coming into my mind in seconds. The flood gates of creativity have finally opened for me after a year of struggle. How can entire stories flash into my head? Does this happen to other writers?

Wow, you need a secretary with great speed in typing skills - but how wonderful to feel so creative.
Glad about the vision improving after all these years. I know what floaters are, as last summer I rushed to see a local optician when I started seeing little black shapes as if they were midges flying in and out of my vision, swatted at them and realised they were internal!!! He told me only to worry if they became clusters. Hardly ever see them now.

Yes I do need a secretary. I hope to hire one before the end of the year:)

I've lived with my floaters a long time and except for a few days out of each year they don't effect my vision much.

I wish I got the story the whole story at once.

For me, I would rather say that my mind gets filled up with a single scene with strong emotions. How they got there and where they go on I have no idea. I have to pull it out, bit by bit.

Geting the whole story at once isn't fun. I've had days when I've got hundreds of stories flashing into my mind. Very detail complex stories. I'm going to try to write a post explaining this.
