Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
i relive over and over certain parts of my daydream. The bits i like the most. Then I might change something or imagine it differently if I get fed up of it. But i build a whole back story, once I have the main events in mind.
I do that all the time!
For instance, I daydream about a movie, about me being in the movie, and being with a certain character in the movie. When I daydream I focus on the parts that have the character (and me) then the rest of it I skip..but I kind of skim through in my mind what happens so it doesn't feel imcomplete.
^ That's literally what I used to do (and still sometimes). As a kid when I watched movies I would make up a character and put the character into the scenes while I watched the movie but then come up with the dialogue and whatever differences my character brought to it.
I've been away a few days, found a game online that soaks up my sci-fi imagination. It's an alien plot to distract me from reality. They put me back in time but it wasn't exactly the same place from where I was taken. Feeling like a pin cushion must be a side affect of time travel. I gained about six pounds while I was gone. I have lean ripped muscles and my body aches from exercise and work. I must be on alien vacation recovering from a spiral fracture of my right distal fibula. While my dreams are not interrupted, I am asleep. Monster week on Animal Planet. Check out the Mermaids! 8 PM ??
It is difficult to skip forward sometimes, I need my backstory to be properly filled in and it nags me if I advance without it.
wow glad to read i am not the only one, but i have written down a few of my daydreams as novels, and am in the process of doing one now, which is up online and it's had a few reads, so my day dreaming has not gone to waste lol
I don't follow a timeline at all. There is a timeline in my daydreams, but I don't follow it. I'll skip around, go back in time, forward in time, re-do old ones, etc.
