Dreams- No I am totally serious! I’ve always have very clear, very lucid dreams. It was a curse when I was a child. I would often confuse what I had dreamt with real life and I have totally vile nightmares. I would force myself to stay awake for days just to avoid bad dreams.
Still, there are benefits. I can still fly in my dreams, which apparently most people grow out of. (What that says about my maturity level I don’t know.) I kept a dream diary when I was 15, I still have it! 3 notebooks full of my subconscious and I find it fascinating.
More to the point, I have had some of my best ideas from dreams and even dreamt of meeting the characters I have written about and asked them what happens to them next! (I think that may be cheating.) The novel I am working on comes from an idea that was literally dreamt up. Not sure were the story is going, I woke up before the dream reached a conclusion. Will have to see where my pen takes me 😉
