Writer as Actor

I'm starting to work on revisions for the hoarding YA right now which is great for me and not so great for those close to me. Or even anyone that I have to deal with for that matter. Once I start thinking about the story and the characters, one part of my brain is always thinking about it, even if I'm in line at the grocery store, walking the dog or working yard doody. I also have a habit of verbalizing dialogue which embarasses the kids to no end. It would be really embarassing if you were stopped at a light and the characters are really talking to you out loud and you look over and the lady in the next car is staring at you like you are Sybil or something. Not that it has ever happened to me or anything...

On this date: In 1949, Billy Joel was born.

hehe, okay. I don't do THAT! But my family thinks I'm a bit nutso when I sit in front of my computer, banging my head on the desk and dragging my hair down in front of my face. They keep their distance on those days.
