    As an adult, do you still play "make believe"?

    Some may be too shy to answer such a question, but do you ever lay in your bed at night, or day dream you are somewhere else in a totally different life?  I'm not saying on a beach or on vacation, but something outlandish like on a space ship or in a medieval fantasy world?

    I've always had a very vivid imagination, I guess that is the main reason why I enjoy creative writing. At times when my brain hurts and I've just given up on the world in general, I like to retreat to my imaginary world where anything is possible. I find that it relieves my stress and takes my mind off of whatever was upsetting me.

    Every day and in multiple ways. Imagination expands the possible.

    Absolutely.  I especially use this when I am plotting a story. In my mind I become the protagonist and the story seems to flow. I will lay in bed and begin the storyline, and the story takes on a life of its own.

    I guess nothing too outlandish except that I am the "hero" of the story, young, strong-with many qualities that are lacking in m life now.

      I feel exactly the same way.  In my imaginative stories I imagine I have qualities I know I don't possess now.

    Most definitely. The sound of the air purifier in my office for second hand smoke is the sound of this space ships engines. 'Scotty Warp 8 please!' From a communicator nestled now on my hip I hear a reply, "I-eye, Cap'n"
