I feel like this sentiment is so true, for writers and creatives alike. I truly believe that we see the world differently. We're not normal. We often times live in our own world, with our own set of beliefs and views and opinions, but it's okay because they know us here.
It's entirely normal for me to sit, and be very quiet only to jerk upward and start rambling on nonsensically about some epiphany I just had regarding a chapter. Or to talk about my characters like they're real people. Because to me, they are real. In my mind they live, and breathe, and feel. When I write their pain, I feel it. I cry when they cry, I rage when they rage.
I've made my own normal, and I excel at it.
