On Friday, I'm going to be posting about alexithymia in us and in our characters. Alexithymia means "without words for emotions" but is a bit more complicated than that. Before I talk too much about it, though, how about heading to this online questionnaire and seeing if you have any alexithymic tendencies? (I've taken it myself. A box will pop up asking if you want to open or save; just click "open" and you can take the test, and at the end your score and its interpretation will appear). It takes about 3 minutes.
No need to share your score unless you really want to. It's just something to think about. And on Friday, I'll talk about what alexithymia is really about--and what writers should know about it when they're writing characters.
And, as it's Monday, don't forget to stop by Lydia's blog for her Medical Monday post, and then hop over to Laura's blog for her Mental Health Monday post!
