The commuter…

  
I’m almost certain that each and every one of these people is thinking something different on their commute to work which got me thinking… 

What goes through people’s minds when they are not actively engaged in conversation? Music? I am sure most people are imagining something that coincides with the music they are listening to. Books? When people are reading their imagination is completely governed by the writer, taking them to a different world. The mobile phone? I see people texting and playing games. Totally engulfed in a world of their own. 

It’s when I see people with none of the above who are just sat there staring out of the window watching the world go by. What are these people thinking about? Family? Work? Relationships? Are they happy or sad thoughts?
Then something may happen on the train which all of a sudden, even for a split second, has people thinking the same thoughts. Each persons way of thinking and interpretation of an event is different. Fascinating right?
My journey to work and back is pretty average except I am in a world that I can guarantee no one apart from me is in. As I put pen to paper my characters come back to life. It’s like I’ve hit the ‘pause’ button and pressed ‘play’ again.
So am I ready to share this with the world? Am I ready to let people into these lives that I’ve created. The answer is yes. But not just yet. 
Watch this space… It’s almost time…

    I am one of those people who thinks of random things while on a commute! Most of the time I make up stories of other people! 😀

    Building up the wait huh! Well as a commuter myself I can gaurantee each one million thoughts on their heads but the only thing is each of them think they are boring and lost in the crowd. Kinda depressing tbh. Anyways good luck with the book! 🙂
