darmody replied to SJ's discussion I'm curious what is the longest day dream you have had?
"I should clarify that the story has changed radically over the years. The only constants are the title, the general premise, the main character, and a few key incidents I made up back then. "

darmody replied to SJ's discussion I'm curious what is the longest day dream you have had?
"The oldest continuous story I developed first when I was in floating around in my grandparents' pool. I must have been 8 or 9, definitely pre-pubescent. Which would mean it's been going on for almost 30 years. "

Daydreams versus Art

I've been daydreaming since I can remember, and have created countless stories in my head. Some of them over the course of years, with attendant complexity. I have also written stories and made short films. Never have the two met. I don't work out my paper or video stories in daydreams. At most I steal discrete elements from my daydream stories, not the whole thing. Is this true for anyone else? See More

"Playing with Strings"

Posted on February 24, 2017 at 11:54am 1 Comment

That's what we call it in my family. I've done it ever since I can remember. (I theorize that my string playing started with the corners of the "blankie" I had as a kid, but who knows?) I lie down, usually on my bed, with a plain, white t-shirt on my chest to provide a neutral background. I take a length of string, usually shoestring, and twirl it with my hands. Frankly, I don't really know what actions I perform with the string in my hands, because by the time I'm doing it my mind is…
