Are you a compulsive doodler?
I don’t mean the kind of informal drawing that artists sometimes call doodles. That’s lightweight.
I mean the almost unconscious wiggles, swirls and dots on the back of an envelope while you’re on the phone;
filling in alternate squares on grid paper to make a checky tiled effect.
(I HUGELY recommend graph paper, or old fashioned school exercise books)
I think it oddly combines letting your mind drift, and helping it to concentrate.
Dot’s a doodler. I have found it the easiest thing in the world to share this trait with my invented character.
I wonder what our doodles reveal about us, though – our personalities, our subconscious. I’ve shown you ours – will you show us yours?
I’lll psychoanalyse them for free!
