Thursday Thoughts: Universal Pretend

universeWhat do writers do first and foremost? We pretend. We pretend to be our heroines, our heroes. We pretend to be here or there, wherever our stories are set. We pretend to talk to try out conversations, make sure they sound real. Because isn’t that what pretend is all about? Trying things out to make them seem real? Yeah, that’s what I think. And dude, if time and space has coffee and dark chocolate, handsome heroes can’t be far behind, because…yeah. I write romance. 😆 So anyway, still convinced the Universe is a writer.

Silver James! What are you doing back in time and space?

A-ha! I see. Pretending.

Is it true that the illusions are soooooo captivating, the coffee soooooo rich, and the chocolate soooooo dark, it’s easy to forget you’re just making it all up? And that if you don’t like what you’re experiencing you can make-up something else, act “as if” it’s true, and move towards it with baby steps, to change absolutely anything?

Yeah, I already know…

Cream and sugar?

Pretend, Silver… it’s what you do in time and space.

I’m pretending today, after I meet my CP for coffee this morning. What are y’all up to?

  1. I’m taking a couple days off from pretending. It’s all reality, all the time, baby. But I like reality. We’re having a spectacular sunrise this morning. The coffee’s good and hot. All’s right with my little corner of the world. “Everything will be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, it is not yet the end.” Or even if it is alright, it’s not yet the end. Or something.

    Have fun with your CP. And have fun pretending! =o)
