I spent the day playing with my characters like I did when I was a kid.
I love this, and I recommend everyone find something they used to love to do as a kid and DO IT! Reconnecting with that childlike magic is worth the effort.
For me, I used to carry around all these journals and just write in them. It was one of my favorite things to do. It got so bad that in high school, I carried a second book bag around with me that had all of my journals and stories in it.
I forgot how freeing it is to just write and play with ideas without being critical of the words I was writing. I feel amazing.
Join me. What did you used to love to do as a child, and what was it like to do it now as an adult?
My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
