    maybe i am a writer! lol i am always worried about what others are thinking… about me. i mean i know they aren’t, but i can’t seem to help thinking they are. and i am thinking about them too. too much about them, like i am spending waaaay too much of my time thinking about other people thinking about me. lol

    You do what I wish I could do, i.e. watch other people, see how they talk, what they’re wearing, what they’re talking about. I don’t observe people enough. I use my well of memories to create my characters but I know I could really add to that by taking care to observe others every day.
    Thank you, Alica.

      My dad loves people watching- he sits in bookstores drinking coffee and just watches people go by on the street- of course he gets to watch people in the San Fransisco Bay Area- so he gets to have extra fun 🙂
      Thanks Patti.

    How funny, Alica. I do exactly the same thing. I watch people and make up stories for them. I’ve always assumed everyone was watching me, too. LOL Yep. It’s crowded here at the center of the universe. 🙂

    I love this: “…as long as there aren’t any writers nearby no one cares what you’re doing, so go and have fun. And if there are writers, have fun anyway you might inspire a character in their next novel!”

    “In conversations with my normal friends, i.e. non-writers, apparently they don’t stand in line at the grocery store and wonder why someone is wearing that outfit. They also don’t watch body language and create intricate relationships for strangers at restaurants.”

    They don’t? I thought that was normal. Love the anti-Zen!
