I think my subconscious might be showing off.


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, 



About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
