Lost in My Head

The other night I watched an author on Cspan discuss his book on Abraham Lincoln. The author said that most creative people like Lincoln have “issues” which the author referred to as melancholy.  I’m like, Duh! As a whole, I think authors are neurotic and out of touch with reality since the people in their minds take up housekeeping in our heads. During that time I can describe to a T the names of the streets in my book, even though I forget how to get to my local Wal-mart.  Scary but true!

    I’ve yet to meet a writer who is normal. But normal is overrated.

    I thought the saying was “describe to a tee.”

    I’ve always thought authors were awesome just because of the ability to create new people, worlds, etc. But, preseverance and that same ability to create make fans like y’all!

    This has been attributed to at least two people that I know of. I’m not sure of the original author, but I’m on board with it.
