The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James ThurberMeet Walter Mitty.
Hes a Husband.
Hes a Captain of a Navy ship
Hes a toughest man on the trial
Hes the man who can a woman from distress and is a hero to all man kind.
Hes also worrying his wife, his co-workers, his boss and his shrink.
Walter Mitty has dreams. Dreams of being a hero. But hes not dreaming them in bed, like everyone else is. Hes dreaming these events while driving, while shopping, talking to his wife, walking down the street. He sees himself as a hero to everyone, but doesnt really do anything about it. Hes just your average Joe that is taking his wife to get her hair done. And while she is getting her hair done, he runs errands. But everyday life, everything that we see, feel, touch, hear generates this scene in his head where he is the hero to the story and hes living it right then and there!! While everyone looks at him like hes weird, he doesnt see what wrong with this!!
As a writer I was thrilled that I am not the only person that this is happening too!!! I cant tell you how many times I will be sitting at the Library that I work at and there will be an event that will take place, or someone says something to me and it triggers a scene playing in my head and Im living that story out (in my head of course). I am a writer and I am always getting scenarios playing out in my head that sometimes leave me speechless until I am writing that out in my laptop. Sometimes I talk out loud the scenes but hey, Im a writer its allowed. (I think....)

The beauty of getting older is seeing the world change. The curse of getting older is not always remembering how the world used to be.
