Sometimes I’m sitting around and a sentence or two will just pop into my head, unbidden. Dialogue or prose. I won’t know where from – and often it comes to nothing. But for the last few weeks I haven’t been able to get the following out of my head:
“There’s a woman standing behind you. And you turn and she’s not there. But she is. And she’s smiling. And I don’t know why but that terrifies me.”
Any ideas what’s wrong with my brain?
