"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Do you have an internal monologue?
If you do have an inner voice, how do you usually talk to yourself? If not, what happens in your mind when you think?

    Difficult questions, @NatashaT .
    I'm not sure if I have the answers.
    Maybe it'll help if you tell me first how were or are your conversations with your inner voice. :)
    Like now, I'm writing this text and in my head I am reading while I'm writing, however I'm that I don't hear my inner voice commenting it. :|

    Now in my head I'm reading it again to find mistakes in my text. :)

    @april - Here is your correction:-

    Difficult questions, @NatashaT. I'm not sure if I have the answers.

    Maybe it would help if you told me first what your conversations with your inner voice are.

    For example, I'm writing this text now, and in my head I am reading while I'm writing, however I'm sure that I don't hear my inner voice commenting on it.

    Now in my head, I'm reading it again to find mistakes in my text.
