    Does anybody let their minds wander when they write?


    What I mean by that is do you ever just follow a stream of emotionally fueled thought in your writing. Almost like a journal writing without much conscious intervention in the form of relating to an audience( more of the notepad being a receptor of your "unconscious thoughts").

    I read a book today about some famous writers and how a lot of their escapist dreams, daydreams, and thoughts were excellent source material for their writing. I think it would be interesting to see if certain types have more ability in this type of writing, or if any conclusions or corollaries can be drawn from the general themes of each type or whathaveyou.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Yep, the subsconscious is very powerful.. it can be released in a sorta meditative state.. so that you are gently guiding, but like a lucid dream, the subconscious creates. It's fun

    to sort of compare my thoughts to jeffsters post, personally, I am in sort a meditative state most of the time. A lot of my daydreams have extreme physical rootings. Basically its a state where I'm heavily entrenched in my mind and the subject matter is what is actually happening outside of my head but with a somewhat moderate fantasy tinge.

    If something challenging calls my attention I'll immediately revert back and get my bearings( I usually have to sort of track back to know what actually happened) a little bit and proceed with whatever called my attention. I prefer to focus on my somewhat fantasy tinged representation of the world because it feels like I sort of have an ability for Jason Borne like decision making in that I can follow a pattern see the possibilities retreat, rinse, and repeat.

    wow why is everyone saying no?

    daydreaming is totally an N thing. not N like your type has to be xNxx. but N like the Intuition function. with no Intuition, there would certainly be no daydreaming (although it's kind of a moot point as humans would be entirely worthless without Intuition and would die pretty quickly )

    I'm not sure if I daydream so much as zone out.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

    it would be wrong to say that S's don't day dream but i do think N's day dream MORE. we strive to be original, we don't care if our heads' in the clouds and our feet's not on the ground. heck, we like it. we want to be creative, we want to be original. i think day dreaming has a lot of that.

    i also think i agree with usehername's theory. not saying that N's can't be master or phsyical skills or whatever, but i always find that my mind wanders. i can't and don't want to blank it out but sometimes that makes me focus on other things when i guess i should be focusing on what my senses are telling me.

    agreed.

    N's tend to do it more then S's.

    also mentioned above that everybody uses N and its an N function...agreed also

    I sometimes have to concentrate to keep myself from wandering off into my imagination while listening to lectures.
