Dreams are finicky. Some people never really remember their dreams. Some people have epic story dreams to rival blockbuster films. Some suffer nightmares.
Writers, I like to think, are always on the lookout to capture new stories. Sort of like that normal guy in the park with a giant butterfly net trying to ensnare strangers.
Dreams are a wonderful tool! Our unconscious minds explore the outer edges of creativity and imagination.
I don’t know about you, but I can recount some of my favorite dreams, some of which occurred when I was 12 years old!
Some people keep dream journals. Some roll over, fall back asleep, and forget the finer details.
What about you?
Have you ever had a dream that spoke to you? Did you dream up a story that poked at the imaginative bear inside your brain-cave? (Hopefully you can dream some better metaphors, but you get the idea!)
Did any of those dreams inspire you to write?
