So, after I wrote about my sub-conscious the other day I think it took notice and wanted to make me proud, which it surely did. Far from being the shy woodland creature I wrote about, last night it was puffing up its chest proudly and declaring ‘I am a magnificent Peacock; now observe my plumage in every hue imaginable’. Five minutes after my subconscious let me know it had sorted out the meaning of the one man show I am writing, it then slammed me with an entire opening scene for a tv show idea I have. It came with full dialogue, pictures in glorious technicolour, high def sound and a slight sense of smugness from my subconscious, which in fairness, it totally deserved. It took me by surprise so much and grabbed my attention so completely that Gauri had to say my name three times before I came back to my reality. I looked at her in a very confused and blank way. She asked me ‘Where did you just go?’ and I replied ‘Into my brain I think.’ So, when I figured out what was happening, I thanked my subconscious and quickly wrote down all the ideas it had just given me before they slipped ethereally away. I am going to have to try this trick even more often now.
Hey, as a spot of homework for you, give it a go. See if it works for you. If it does, please let me know.
Take care buddies,
