I have an internal dialogue that would put the effervescent energy of Jim Carey to shame. It’s constantly going. And it’s not just my own voice either. It’s a myriad of voices and characters that have different intimations and accents depending on a given situation or my mood. It’s probably why my readers have told me that my characters in my books sound so real.
The thing is, they’re not always confined to my head. I have a tendency to “voices” and “accents” in my everyday life. Often to narrate animals and inanimate objects. My impression of a cat, I’m told, is dead on.
So, if we ever meet and you spend any significant time with me, don’t be surprised if I suddenly start speaking to random things or people or animals. Especially if I do it in a different voice. ESPECIALLY if the comments seem to be a one sided narration.
I promise I’m okay. I’m just silly.
