Mind Trick

Mind Trick is a drama monologue that explores how Arash deals with strange thoughts and erratic behavior within himself.

ARASH:  Sometimes I feel like I’m not normal…what is normal anyway, right?  I guess, like everyone else.  I get stupid thoughts sometimes.  I keep them to myself because I don’t want anyone thinking I’m a weirdo.  I wonder if everyone gets strange thoughts but just don’t want to admit it.  I think we all get strange thoughts.  You want to know what kind of thoughts I get? 

Well, I can’t tell you cause, it’s too embarrassing.  It is.  I just can’t.  I mean, you ever have a thought where your mind just wanders off into some unknown world and it captivates you for a minute or two and suddenly you snap out of it because you realize that it’s a messed up thought?

That’s as far as I want to go with it, with what I’m telling you cause it makes me feel funny discussing this but do you, honestly; do you ever—does your mind ever play tricks on you?

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
