Attack to the Alter Ego

Hello Fellow Junkies!

How is  everyone doing!

Well things for this little author are going well.  But yes, as you can see from the title, its attack of the alternate ego. Now to those that do not know me, I’m actually a graduate student in Chemistry.  Amazing huh? Sounds a bit boring to some, but yes, I do chemical things in the dark recesses of a building. Well its not really dark, its very well lit in all truths but I like to imagine there is lightning cracking over head, my last name is Frankenstein and I have stolen parts to form a human being.

Who here just got a little chill from that…hmmm maybe I should explore horror?

Anyhoo, yes I am a Chemist. Writer/Chemist.Flyer of the Invisible Jet. Owner of the Lasso of truth.  Kinky!  Just kidding, I’m not Superwoman but this month sure feels like it!

Well like I said before, my alter ego is a Chemist. This comes with its rewards and drawbacks. At times, it helps me get away to my writing when the stories become too much.  At other times, its more fun mixing stuff in the lab and watching the outcomes. I’m fascinated by the little stuff.

So this month, and next month the alter ego attacks.  I’m finishing my Master’s Degree and with it comes the writing of the dreaded thesis. In this thesis, you have to explain in your best words what has taken you three years to make.  The problem with something like this and in doing what I do is that I’ll want to write and make the thesis interesting.  I’ll want to insert paranormal characters fighting against the evil chemical gelatinous goo named…BOB (little promo to those who haven’t seen Monsters vs Aliens) and that BOB is slowly mutating to a 4 armed species making its way to the earth.  Can you imagine my department head if I were to turn in something like that? Hee hee.

Like I said, its my alter ego here.

Today is no different from any other day. There I am doing a series of tests on the compound that at times can be the bane of 24-hours. And as I’m doing so and analyzing the compound, the little voice inside my head starts.  Every author knows this little voice, the one that starts screaming at the top of its lungs saying “WHY AREN’T YOU WRITING ME RIGHT NOW!!!”  And so you pacify this voice, but to no avail because it gets louder and louder and louder, until before you know it, you are writing or you are naming the inanimate objects around you temporary character names.

After Devon the stapler and the Sahara the computer helped me finish some work, that’s when it hits me.  Maybe its time to write a book about the one thing I try to avoid writing, Chemistry.  This started a Chemical Olympics.  Names are flying, ideas are flying for the background. Proposals of what can be done, what should be done for twists and turns within said plot.  And what did I do? Packed up my things and headed home.

So as I hide out in my little bungaloo, I ask those who have alter egos. What has been your worse attack to your alter ego?

I’ll see you soon next month fellow Junkies!

Keep on writing!

    Thank you thank you Pam and Martha.

    See it attacks you both! I knew I wasn’t the only that get it. And yes I love BOB too. Monsters Vs Aliens is just a movie anyone should watch just to get out of their own lives for a while. hehehee.

    But you understand about those inner voices. That is goooooooood. Very good. Pesky little things.

    Thank you again for commenting!

    And thank you all for dropping by my blog!

    Hi Mila!

    It is so cool that you are a chemist. Lol a story inspired by BOB could be pretty good stuff :).

    I don’t have any alter egos (that I know of), but I do know about the little distracting inner voice compelling you to do one thing while you are trying to finish something else.

    Hope you have a good weekend!!

    Hi Mila… that is interesting about you being a chemist! Hope any brewing you do stays safe! I think this reading persona is an alter ego for my professional lawyer self. And I can relate to the alter ego calling me to check my reading blogs when I am working!

    Well thank you ladies.

    You just have to love Google. The answer of the world at your fingertips! Thank you for dropping my site, I personally love putting on some music to keep the day going that is for sure.

    As far as chemistry, today it was a good day, the molecules cooperated, tomorrow…the world may never know! lol

    Almost makes me want to break into song…..almost.

    Ah, well, that’s how I found it too, lovely, wonderful Google. 😉 I’m just a big cheat and all. LOL

    Well I had not heard your name before but w/the help of google and a certain confidante named Lois, *wink*, It is you Mila Ramos. I checked out your blog and you told me it was you. Loved your site and the music is awesome
    Love & Hugs,

    Well, I do not have an aliases. . . but sure think it’s cool that you are a chemist! 🙂 That’s the fun part of Chemistry, the mixing stuff up part, not the calculations and tests. Also more fun than Physics lab – I love physics more, but lab was always so boring! LOL 🙂 And pretty sure you just so happen to be Mila Ramos 🙂
