My brother will laugh at me by saying this, but I’m comparing myself to Dexter. You know the serial killer who works for the Miami PD. The one that’s a fictional character who is on TV. I know I am crazy.
I have been watching the seasons. I have finished season one and season two, and I’m just waiting for season three. I love the way the show goes, with Dexter talking to himself in his head. And this is where I start comparing myself.
I to talk to myself in my head, as I’m sure many of us do. Sometimes I’m the only one around to talk to, and that’s not saying I’m lonely. Sometimes the greatest listeners is yourself. I guess Dexter calls himself different and unusual, which he is. I’m not, I’m average. What makes me compare myself to Dexter is actually not talking myself. It is actually talking to you.
I have been told many times that when I write I write as if I’m saying it. I write as if I’m actually talking to you, telling you a story, picturing you in my head as I type the words on the page. I don’t know I started doing it, it was just very conversational. So what brought on this comparison of Dexter, will that would be Dragon Dictate.
As I just mentioned, my writing is a lot like my speech, but I never actually spoke the words I wrote out loud. Now I am, I’m saying my blog posts allowed. I’m looking at a blank document, thinking about what I’m going to say, and then saying it. This also explains why so many of my blog posts, have a lot of grammatical errors, and misused words.

This addition of Dragon Dictate has allowed me to say whatever I want without having to over think it. When I actually type out what I’m going to say, I over think it. I over analyze and forget to just say what I want to say. Now I can.
“It was a very nice day outside.”
See what I just did there, I said whatever I wanted to in the program just translated my speech to text. The word bliss comes to mind. Although I’m fairly certain my roommate now thinks I’m crazy, but as I said above that is common knowledge.
