I never thought my life would be anything anyone would want to read about. I just get up every day and do stuff. But I do have a lot of mental garbage floating around and I have to say, it feels pretty good to write about it. It also means I am putting my money where my mouth is. I am constantly annoying and harassing my clients to write. It's tremendously therapeutic as it forces you to put your experiences into words and onto paper. This makes them real yet removed from you emotionally. When you put words on a page you are then able to sit back and look at them objectively. You are mentally and physically processing when you write. Both sides of the brain light up. It's one stop shopping for working through whatever life has thrown at you.
As a kid literally narrating in my head whatever was happening at any given moment, "She pours the cereal in the bowl and prepares to eat it like a hungry wolverine" was a pretty standard thought process. I don't know if everyone has this. I just know that my brain has always been like this and it used to annoy me as a kid because at times it was almost compulsive. Inner monologue and hair twirling are my own special OCD-type quirks. The combination of inner narration and hair twirling are kind of my signature moves. So if you see me twisting my hair around my finger and staring off into space rest assured that there is probably something totally awesome happening up in my head.

As I write this I've had to stop several times to twirl my hair. I would be an absolute disaster as a poker player.
