I found out my brain was a bit different a few years ago. My husband was telling me about this man he saw and how he looked just like he had pictured a character in a book he had been reading. And I couldn't understand what he meant. I love reading too, but I've never thought about how the characters look like other than how they are described by the author.

So I started asking him questions about it and found out he could actually make pictures in his head. In hindsight it makes me feel a bit silly, but I had never thought about other people being able to do this. And I started asking other people about it and found out that everyone else seemed to be able to do this too.

Earlier today a Facebook friend posted an article about aphantasia and it made a lot of sense to me, so that's why I'm here.

Have you started asking other people about it? Have you found out that everyone else seemed to be able to do this too? http://livecustomwriting.com/ has more discussions about that!
