Anyone else with aphantasia who writes fiction for fun or professionally. I’m curious since you obviously can’t see your characters and world how do you imagine or write stories?


For me its a series of decisions then once I know a general plot or the character well enough, what happens just comes to me. Often interestingly enough when I’m not thinking about it random pieces of story just pop up in my mind.

Does anyone else with Aphantasia struggle with questions that seem to necessitate visualization? Example cube mapping questions, or physics questions where you need to picture what is happening or visualize object(s) and their placement or movement?

Aphantasic, or anyone.

Do you enjoy having mental images?

Or are they overwhelming?

Can you control your mental images or are they a controlling nuisance?

I am curious what people think of their ability or their lack of ability to create mental images.
