I have this problem. I am so bloody sick of editing my current manuscript so I thought I would break away from it for a bit before I destroy it. The problem is, I cant seem to escape the constant idea that everything has to make sense in terms of everyday life.

Im a huge horror fan and I love to write and I would love to write something creepy for a change. The problem is I cant seem to escape this thought pattern of reality that I have. I have the same problem with my art. My art is all about realism. How close can I paint this picture to resemble real life? How the heck can I practice breaking away from the idea that everything has to make sense in terms of normal day to day life on earth? How can I practice a process of thinking outside the box or being abstract? Does anyone else have this problem? Is there any advice for learning how to create our OWN reality? Is it even possible to change patterns of thinking to write outside my typical genre?
