blogs & metrics  

I have utterly failed to mention here on my blog that I’m participating in Magical Words, a group author blog about…writing, at least in theory. :) But I’m mentioning it today because 1. I’ve been meaning to, but much more importantly, 2. I have today brought up the topic of visualization, which is one of my favorite weird things to discuss. People should pop over there and discuss it, and pop over there in general when they can! :)

I didn’t want very much to work today, but I got through about 2900 words and finally went for a walk, hoping it would inspire me some. Instead my little walk turned out to be almost 6 miles and 2900 words is my final answer for the day. *squinchy face*

ytd wordcount: 89,100
miles to Minas Tirith: 176.2

Hee. I rememebr this conversation on your LJ a while back. I'm in the same boat--I see and hear words, but not pictures.

On a side note, since I also draw, I find my actual drawings never turn out like the amorphous idea of an image I had in my head. It's rather strange that way.

(And probably strange that I draw in the first place when I can't see what I'm going to draw...)

Appearing in a LJ friends list as magicalwords to subscribe to as a feed.

As I've said before - those people who visualize are just plain weird.

Pictures in my head!

Should be an interesting panel at P-Con so.

I get weird images in my head at times, and here are two of the weirdest
1) at a party they were playing Riverdance music and I got this image in my head (which I can still see) of Darth Vader and Imperial Stormtroopers dancing away (and yes I know that has since been filmed since)
2) many years ago I was over at a friends house and one of the girls was playing piano. I glanced up at a mirror and the relection showed us in 18th century outfits.
