Everyone who knows me knows my imagination runs wild. I'm always coming up with a new idea for a story, writing out some sort of poem, or trying to create a new world to dive into. While this is (almost) always a good thing and I love creating new worlds to dive into, sometimes my imagination gets in the way of me focusing on things I need to get done before I can sit down and create.
I get very frustrated with school work sometimes, even if it's just reading a short book for English class. I still get my work done, but my mind wanders to other topics I ask myself things like, "What can I do with this new character?" or "Oh, that would make a good poem!"
What seems like hours later, I look back down at my textbook and realize I've been reading, but not paying attention to the content of what I am reading. This leads to me spending even more time on my homework, and less time letting me be in my own little world.
Being creative has never hindered me in anything I do, but I always prefer to work on my own writings rather than read for school or work on a research paper. My boyfriend or anyone could be talking to me and I'll be off in my own little world and I'll just come back and be totally lost on anything that was just said to me.
Being creative and having my imagination run wild has made me lose focus sometimes, but I wouldn't want it any other way! It lets me be creative, authentic, and share who I truly am.
The story I am currently working on is one of my favorite things I've written, and I can't wait to share it!
