Tabby Talk is a discussion post I thought I'd do occasionally where I'll share my random thoughts on something and include my cat in them ;)
Today, I'm curious to hear about how everyone's mind works. More specifically, how do you process your thoughts? When you're reading a book, you form thoughts about the story which later translates into your review. How do those thoughts come to you?
I remember back in high school, I had an English teacher who talked a little bit about how her brain worked. She told the class that her mind is always on overdrive working, thinking and processing things. When a thought pops into her head, it's incomplete. She described it visually as words swimming inside a thought bubble. In order for her to convert that thought into something coherent, she needed to grab that word out of the bubble. I remember thinking that that's such a neat way to describe your mind!
Now when I think about what she shared then, I feel like she made so much sense. I feel like I'm the type with the thought bubble! When I get an idea or feeling, the words float inside my mind but they're never complete thoughts. I think that's why it takes me longer than usual to write up a review. I leave the words simmering in my head for awhile. Sometimes I have a hard time putting them into coherent thoughts afterwards. I never know if I'm making sense and getting my point across because the initial words (in the bubble) made way more sense than when I form them into sentences. This always leads me to deleting sentences and rewriting them about ten time before I finally let them slide. Does all this make sense? Hopefully I didn't confuse anyone.
Aaaand those are Ripple's thoughts! He thinks mostly in one word bubbles with the occasional
repetitive words ;) Do you see a pattern in his thoughts? :P How about you? How do you come across your thoughts? How do you process them?
