The Silver Lining | The Power of Imagination

This is what I see outside my window:


And this is what I see in my head:

Other things that exist only in my head:

  • Before I chose my husband, I was in an intense love triangle between him and a vampire
  • I have terrific abs
  • My apartment cleans itself
  • Before I started working as a graphic designer, I fought demons/aliens/zombies/unicorns/etc as my unpaid job. Chosen ones are rarely paid. But I did master some cool combat moves.
  • I go to the gym 7 days a week
  • I have unlimited space on my DVR and unlimited time in the day to watch
  • New episodes of My So-Called Life, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sailor Moon, and Veronica Mars with the original cast start airing tonight
  • My metabolism allows me to eat chocolate for every meal
  • I teleport to work
  • When I need to do laundry, I just twitch my nose ala Bewitched.
  • If I make a plot mistake in my WIP, I don’t revise to fix it. Instead I time travel back to before I made the mistake and write it correctly the second time.
  • My apartment is like the tents in Harry Potter, on the outside it appears to be a one-bedroom but it magically expands to the size of a mansion inside

This is why I’m a writer. Life would be boring if I had to live it as it really is.

What exists only in your head?

*special thanks to Jen Hayley who answered “snow” when I asked her what I should blog about and that gave me the idea for this post, which was fun to write!

  1. -Deadline day magically expands to contain an infinite number of hours

    -If I lint-roll my comforter, it’s the same as taking it to the dry cleaners

    -Coke is a liquid, therefor it’s a fine source of hydration

    -They’ll make a movie of my book. They’ll ask me to star in it. They’ll have me lead the casting sessions, which will involve me kissing Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Milo Ventimiglia, John Krasinski, and Michael Cera to determine with which one I have the strongest chemistry. The results will be inconclusive. We will have to conduct the auditions again.

    • I LOVE your ideas. Especially the last one though I will have to add Ian Somerhaulder to the list as well as Jared Leto who has graciously time-traveled from 1995 to audition. And Matt Bomer even though he’s too old to play YA.
