My Own Little Worlds
I spend the majority of every day in my head. Sometimes I map things which happen in the real world to be my little fantasy worlds. I always have a few of them at any given time. Some are completely fabricated, with my own characters and environment. Sometimes I use worlds and characters which already exist. Sometimes I put myself in these worlds, sometimes I act through somebody else. I script entire conversations and scenarios, I spend hours every morning and night running through them. I'm pretty socially awkward, so one of the things I like about creating a world inside of my head is that I can control everything. There's no judgement, or caution, or fear, and I can act out things in my mind which I would never do in real life, or which could never possibly happen. I realise that it's probably incredibly sad, and not particularly healthly. Sometimes I think I could be a great writer, as I have a whole stockpile of ideas and developed stories and characters floating around in my head. Other times I think I would just come across as a bad fanfiction writer. I guess I use it as a form of avoiding my real problems. If I stepped out of my head for one day I would realise that I have nothing going on in my real life.
