Some Defense mechanisms (via Writer’s Circle)

Here is a good list of ways people cope with stress: Everyone reacts differently, however, so not all defense mechanisms are listed. A good rule of thumb is to think about how you react to situations, or how you’ve seen someone else react. Different personalities react in different ways, we’ve all seen a group of people get the same news and react.

A pop quiz in class, some will be mad, some will be nervous and some will slouch in their chairs already defeated.

An Example: My husband and I were driving along when a dog ran out in front of our car. Hubby was driving and couldn’t stop. I yelled look out, he stomped the brakes. We got out and I ran to the dog, I was upset and on the verge of tears. Hubby was mad, cursing and checking the car for damage.

Boy, was I upset with him! The car can be fixed, the dog couldn’t! He loves dogs; I knew he was upset but his priorities were more practical at first. Where my reaction and priorities were more emotional. After the car checked out fine, he let his sad emotions over the dead dog take over and it was my turn to ask if the car was okay. Then I got mad at the owner of the dog, because why was it loose.

Just something to consider when writing.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
