I thought I would get used to it, but I am finding it more odd the more I do it. What am I talking about? I'm talking about referring to my own books for information that I put into them to begin with. My non-fiction work is now a record of everything I know, but apparently can't remember. And being surprised by what I find when I do refer to myself is a most unusual experience.
It's the natural end result of spending so many years researching one subject, I suppose. In the early days, I could remember everything I discovered, but somewhere along the way... probably around the end of the first decade... my noggin became overloaded and my indexing system started to break down.
Now, when someone asks a question about my subject, generally speaking I have to look up the answer. I have to ask myself what the answer is, as she always knows more than I do. She is smarter than I am. And some days I wish I were myself, because life would be so much easier if I knew what I know.
Yes, it can be quite vexing sometimes, living in the shadow of myself.
