Those of you who follow my blog know I'm an author. When you write you need to know your characters inside and out. Your hero and heroine can think like you do but one of them has to take the opposite viewpoint. If they don't there would be no conflict between them. lol
Have you ever gone to a movie with friends or hubby and it was so good that you wanted analyze every part of it and explain it to others even those who saw it with you? lol I used to. My friends and I could see a movie and discuss every aspect of what went on between the characters. Now, if I go to the theatre with hubby it's either a good movie, okay one or bad. lol He has no desire to talk about it. lol
My hubby thinks I'm disagreeing with him when I give him another viewpoint other than the one he gives. Often I agree with him but will still throw out the other side of a situation just to give him more to think about. lol Of course, he doesn't see it that way.
About this time, you are probably asking yourself what is the purpose of analyzing everything. The reason is to understand the other viewpoint whether we think it's wrong or right. I have always been analytical from a very young age. I studied people, their mannerisms, their tone of voice and their actions. I wondered what these things meant. As I grew older I knew what they meant, and then I wanted to know why. Many of these actions were explained to me through books, movies, and other people until I was able to develop my beliefs.
I try to understand everyone and everything. I may not agree with a person, but I appreciate their feelings. Sometimes, I can't identify with them. Do you analyze or do you just accept that is the way it is without thought?
Have a good week. See you next Sunday.
