I think I over analyze too much. How about you? Do you over analyze?
I'm over analyzing right now, thinking, "Is over analyze spelled as one word (overanalyze... which is, by the way, underlined in red, courtesy of Blogger's spell check, but which is spelled right judging by dictionary.com), spelled with a hyphen (over-analyze) or as two separate words (over analyze)?
**A small pause while several people reading this post go to dictionary.com, murmuring to themselves, "What does over analyze (overanalyze, over-analyze) mean, anyway?" (New Tab. Tappety tappety tap. Enter. Click. Tappety tappety tap. Enter.) "Aha!"**
For instance, I don't know about you, but I think I get hung up on those little tiny details that most people wouldn't notice, but which seem incredibly, glaringly obvious to me. Those silly little things that drive me crazy trying to come up with a reason for WHY such a thing is such a way.
If I have magic users in a book, where did the magic come from? Why can people use it? HOW is it used? What sort of ceremony must be used in conjunction with this phenomenon? And on and on and on.
It makes us cranky, precious, yes, cranky. It makes us become glum and darkly philosophical. It makes us think bitter thoughts like this:
Sometimes life is like those first two or three chapters of a manuscript. Nothing is happening. The scene is being set for the future thrills that will happen (we hope) later on in the novel. You read through those chapter, waiting for the good parts to happen. Most of the time, books take off and lead you into the most fabulous adventure! Hurray! Other times, it is the most depressingly, time-wasting book that goes nowhere, does nothing, and doesn't resolve anything.
Sort of like your life.
It makes us browse YouTube in a depressed kind of way. It leads us to strange blogs that makes us blink and go, What? It makes us listen to videos like this:
I think this wee young man is weirder than I am, which is saying a lot. Seriously, who really spends their time making weird videos in a Gollum voice?!?!?! I mean, really!
The sad thing, these stupid videos are so addicting. I'm listening to Mad World right now, and chuckling like a fool.
But that's all for now. I'm up to chapter 10 in revision, so maybe I'll leave this post feeling like an all around nicer, better, happier person.
God bless you in the future
