why yes, i *do* like the sound of my own voice [userpic]

I have just noticed how scary it can be to read the writing of people you know.

Some stuff is only marginally alarming. When you mean to express yourself, you express what you know of yourself, what you see and either are or can become adjusted to. There may be surprise for some who barely know you, but none for those who know you well (and know what you know) or don't know you at all (and know that everyone's pretty much alike.)

But if someone you've never seen pops up in your head and starts screaming, beware. Write their story. And when the story is done, realize that it is quite probably your own innermost being, in all its fear and rage and convolution, that has imprinted itself on the page.
