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…
