this happens to other people, right?

Despite my secondary school habits, I am not a fiction person. There is a very good reason for this. Fiction sucks me in. Once I start, I cannot stop. People who read a chapter or two a day are beyond my comprehension. If it's there and unfinished, I bury myself in it until it is finished. So, in the interest of getting something, anything, done, I avoid most fiction.

But when I do become involved with fiction for an extended period of time, I start to think in narration. There will be a running voice in my head, describing what's going on. "She opened the book, without a thought for the stacks of homework piling up on her desk."

Is this normal?

Normal, what's Normal..It might be helpful to walk around with a narrator sometimes..
