YOU KNOW YOU'RE WEIRD WHEN...
I think I've gotten even more weird since I've been writing. This fact was driven home to me just today. In MIDNIGHT SEA Leilani Taguma is blinded in an attack. She's learning to navigate by smell, touch and taste. I was writing a scene where she's looking for gum in her purse. What would she smell, I wondered? I picked up my own purse and inhaled just as my husband came into the room. The look on his face spoke volumes.
"What are you doing?" he asked with an expression that suggested he was about to call for the men in white coats. "Smelling my purse," said as if it were the most natural thing in the world. "Why?" he asked. I explained, but I could tell my explanation still didn't cut it. That's when I realized I've seriously gone over the edge. I'm now an eccentric. I smell purses for fun and profit. I'd always thought I'd like to be eccentric as I get older. Now I'm not so sure.
Anyone want to share the weirdest thing you've ever done?
