Home

Maybe this is going to sound really sad, but I’m just going to come out and say  it.

I miss home.

Not the normal kind of home, though.

The one I’ve created in my mind.

A world where anything  is possible and where bravery and the guts to be different are qualities that are appreciated.

A place where my characters get to live all the time, but that I only get to visit when I have time. It hasn’t been in a while and that makes me sad.

Sure, I love hanging with friends. I love being with my family. I love living my life.

But… it doesn’t feel right when I can’t visit my own world, the adopted country of my mind, once in a while.

Anyone else feel like this?

  1. I feel that way, too, Misha. Sometimes I will see a tree or a rock, and it takes me to that place in my head that is the symbol of home. It has the elements of my real home, but this one is mine alone.
    Good thoughts.

  3. Nope. But I can appreciate that others do feel like this. I recommend grabbing that boyfriend of yours and having a weekend of amazing/ mind-blowing sex. Then get back to me with whether or not you still feel this way.

  4. I feel bad that I've left my characters in suspended animation. Every once in a while one of them will pop out of character and tap on the window of my brain, shrugging as if to say, “WTF, MAN!”

  5. I think I can understand what you mean. However, I've caused a few destructive problems in my mind's world so I'm occassionally okay with not missing it 🙂

    I'm such a meanie.

  6. I would miss them if I hadn't taken to dreaming in one of the worlds from my writing. Makes for a real mental trip waking up in the morning sometimes if the dream is particularly vivid.
