An interesting phenomenon occurs while I write. I sit and stare at my screen, thinking about what I want to say. I compose in my head. And then I'm typing.
This doesn't sound particularly interesting by its own right, so let me explain. I do not finish a thought, decide that it is what I would like, then begin writing it. I am staring into nothingness, start nodding off, wake up, and see myself typing. My thoughts are on the page, as I had composed them in my head, but had no memory of putting my fingers to the keys. I just see myself typing the thoughts as they come to my head and accept that it is happening. (No reason to ask a bunch of questions about something that's helping me out.)
I think it happens because I write while being thoroughly exhausted. I may start the writing process, nod off a bit, then forget that I had started at all. And really, once I start writing, continuing to write is very easy. Since one thought naturally progresses from another, and since I tend to come up with ideas in my head faster than I can put the words down, I can have a pretty continuous flow of writing even when I'm not really paying attention.
Still, it is a freaky experience, to basically wake up in the middle of an activity. But despite that, I kind of want it to happen more. I want to see what I make when I lose those inhibitions and just write what's in my head. Could be gold in those mountains.
First I lose consciousness, and then I'm typing. And now I'm famous. Seems a logical progression to me. One more step to go.
