Voices

Various V words scrolled through my mind, but none of them really stuck that wonderfully.

But the V words just kept coming and I was like, okay damn, I hear y'all, can you just be quiet already...

And I realized I was talking to the voices and there's a V word I could write about.

I don't care what anyone says, argue with me if you want, but every single person has voices in their head. It's just some people get the thin line a little tangled and can't remember that they're really just fake voices inside their head.

As a writer, I've got voices in my head. Male, female, other...So many voices. And sometimes they all talk at the same time. And most of the time all of them are rude and want the attention focused on them alone. And then some of them beg to not be in a story at all.

Sometimes I'm very sure my voices are crazy. Then I remember that I'm basically listening to conversations happening inside my head and most people would classify that as crazy. So, I have to sit back and compromise with the voices. I agree that I'm not insane because hearing voices is a natural thing(especially for writers). And the voices agree to keep to a hum(at most) whenever I'm in public. That way I don't look crazy and actually be crazy too. Although, I may already be crazy, who knows.

What I do know is that I hope you have a very great weekend and I'll catch you Monday. :)

I talk to the voices in my head. And sometimes I talk AS the voices, complete with expressions. I sometimes forget where I am and do this in public. I shouldn't really leave the house alone :-)

My voices turn into scenes, so I usually recite them when I'm alone. :)
