Is Your Mind - Green?
Is my mind, green? I don't think so... No green beer for me this year, and I am indeed from this planet, but oh wait, I am environmentally conscious, is that the kind of "green" you mean?
Actually, the kind of green I'm thinking of has nothing to do with green beer, aliens or the environment. Nope, I'm wondering if anyone else out there has a Green Room in their heads to keep their characters happily waiting?
See, my stories always start with one or more characters waiting for a chance at the lime light. They come to me at the oddest times and won't leave until they've had their say...so I have to do something with them, right?
Thus, The Green Room...
This one just happens to be in my head, but I have to tell you, as waiting rooms go, this place is the bomb! It's dark, sultry colors pull you in and keep you in a sensual visual delight. Dark green, purple and red curtains and upholstery fill the room. Chaise lounges, oversize chairs and pillow filled couches are ready for idling away the time, alone or with a lover.
A large black grand piano sits in the corner where my classical pianist and her sexy Cajun cop play a mix of Mozart and zydeco music, yep my cop can wield one heck of a fiddle along with the piano. ~sigh~
Smokeless fires (hey this is in my head, so I can dream right;) keep the room warm, but not too warm, the body heat does enough of that on its own. hehe
Anyway, my green room is too me, a little touch of heaven inside my head. My characters are mostly happy there, though they would like me to pick up the writing pace, but that's a battle we will always have I'm afraid. :)
What about you...Do you have green rooms for your characters? If so, what do they look like?
Have a great weekend!
