Explaining My Tagline   Leave a comment

They say you’re supposed to write at least 150 words every other day if you want to really do a blog right. It’s easy enough for a writer to write 150 words a day, except I think this ought to be interesting to any readers who stop by. So ….

How to explain my tag line ….

I have learned that writers often have some lunacy we’re hiding. In my case it’s that there are characters in my head that really insist that I give them life on paper.

Until very recently I worked for community behavioral health, in administration. For this reason, I know a lot of schizophrenics, people who are delusional in a very real sense. You can tell … they don’t really function in society. They have voices in their heads too. Before I worked there, I used to sometimes wonder if it was crazy to have characters in your head, but sometime in the 15 years I worked there, and also because I began interacting with other writers, I came to the conclusion that writers are different from schizophrenics in profound ways.

Writers give the voices in our heads life on paper. We function in society. We hold jobs, own homes, drive cars, remember to feed our children (usually), teach Sunday School, participate in politics and benevolence … in short, we order and control our lunacy. We know the difference between reality and fantasy, but unlike ordinary people, we provide fantasy with an outlet and, because we do, we’re able to live life without benefit of Zyprexa.
