I did something similar. Yesterday I was thinking about a story, and then I called out to my boyfriend about the laundry. I almost called him by the name of one of the characters in the story. One of the female characters.

I have a problem that usually only happens when I read something in a book that I feel just has to be played out. I start going around my room and having conversations out loud between a few people. The horrible thing is that I don't quite know how to stop when I have to do this and it sometimes happens when I'm in a room with other people, so I could be having a conversation under my breath with people that aren't even there. It's a thing I've noticed a few other people here have, but no one here in this house who might notice one day seems to do it.

I started talking to myself, having four people in my head debating (Me, Myself, I, and Compromise), almost calling siblings characters' names, making like Gollum and pretending I'm two people, acting out scenes, fazing out mid-conversation, wondering what it weels like to be stabbed, playing swords again, acting like an elf, pretending I'm certain characters, feeling my characters' pain... and lots more. *headdesk*

I havent done anything funny yet, but I go back to school in a few days, and I get the feeling that wont go too well. I have a habit of talking to characters in my head, so I am hoping i dont have to explain to my firends that the reason I wasnt talk was because my character was arguing with me, or even worse if I start actually saying it out loud. That would be horrible.

I havent really been out much since July began, and have been writing or thinking about writing near constantly, so I think going back into reality. Should be interesting. Anyway, better get to writing.

During NaNo this year I was complaining to my mom about my stubborn main character, who refused to be named anything but Chantey. (Chantey Caroline Carlisle. Seriously?) Mom's like, "Um, she's a character. You can call her anything you want." "But you don't understand, her name is Chantey. CHANTEY! And she won't let me change it!" Mom: "Megan. She's a character." Me: *pouts*

Nothing too horrible has happened so far this go around, but I'm sure I'll be back in here soon!


Having the same problem. I named a character Dylan and my MC Caley. But i don't like it. But I can't name them differently. Just... Cant

Not reallyembarrassing, just stupid, but one of my main characters has just told me that he is gay and has a twin brother that he wants to kill. How did this happen? I thought he loved his fiancee.

So, I'm sitting in a cafe in a bookstore writing, waiting for my sister to finish up some meeting there. In the scene I'm writing, this character has someone's hand over his mouth and he's trying to say, "Then stop being so mean," around the hand. Of course, I want to see if I can get the mumbles written out right, so what do I do in the middle of this crowded cafe? I clamp my hand over my mouth, then say "Then stop being so mean" v e r y s l o w l y so that I could write it down.

It took me a few seconds to remember where I was. A couple more and I realized that people were staring, understandably concerned. :embarrassed:

I don't really have a funny story, other than the fact that I'm hiding out at my Grandma's house writing this. My parents make me get off the computer at a certain time, and because most of my work gets done after the nine o'clock hour (and usually well into the next day) stuff just doesn't get written there. But at my grandma's the computer is in the room I sleep in, so I actually work all night while she thinks I'm asleep. *feels guilty*

I wouldn't call it embarassing exactly, but writing about trying to track down a teenage boy's pregnant ex-girlfriend while I was at Jesus camp last week (btw it was AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING lol) was...interesting. :P <3
