Beyond Pandora

Beyond simple curiosity, this is Thinking Too Much. If you're interested in philosophy and/or wild theories, you've come to the right place.

Paddling somewhere between a mad scientist and an organisational artist. Indecisive, inconsistent and often incoherent.

Or Maybe And After All

Okay, so I've only just posted, but I've thought of one thing that does stimulate me both mentally and emotionally.

Stories. Particularly in written form, so I can consider the author's style and turn on the spelling radar while I think about the themes of the book and make a connection with the characters.

However, it doesn't seem to work when I try to write stories. If I try to plan something, the emotions click off and it stops being rewarding. If I don't plan something, it becomes unintelligible.

It does work with editing, though... I have only limited experience in the area, but I like to help people work through their stories. I have to be mentally active in order to be critical, and am emotionally active because it's a story! Characters and emotions!

So maybe there's some hope for me after all.
