R is For... Reality

Reality is a place I tend to spend as little time as I need to in.

I know that I have to spend time in reality but whenever I can I go off in to a world of my own - don't worry they know me there! :-)

There have been numerous times when I have been walking along as someone I know has called my name. And it is only about 30 seconds after they have gone that I realise that someone actually spoke to me.

But then I suppose as an aspiring fiction writer I need to spend some time locked in my imagination - but sometimes I wonder whether I spend just a little too much time there.

It's lovely to live in your own world for an hour or two but it's always best to live in reality and cope with what life deals you,

I think the important thing is you realize the need for both and you recognize the line that separates them. :)

That made me laugh, but it's true. I tune out every now and then too. It's good when you're a writer, but it's also good just to take a break and let your imagination run wild sometimes. :)

I definitely advise to stay in your current, tangible world when walking down the street. For safety purposes.
But I know that feeling, that other universe, and all it's comforts.

Hey there, I've stopped by from TRDC, I find it's a balance between fantasy and reality but then Fiction comes from our understanding of reality.
Remaining functionable and grounded here and now are key for me.

I do the same thing. My husband is always like, "I;ve been talking to you for 10 minutes!"


Nothing wrong with spending a little time in a world of your own. :-)
