Dream Meld

It’s happened. Dreams of real life and imagined life via one of my fiction stories joined together into a mind-tripping dream meld last night. I believe I accidentally set myself up for it when I added a brief dream sequence to my story It Was Her Eyes late last night and shortly later went to bed. A Beta Reader had suggested I consider adding a dream sequence (which I think is a cool idea) and when I came up with one that helped the story, I went with it. Then it went with me as I slept. As Spock would say, “Fascinating.”

With Love,

  1. I.n.t.e.r.e.s.t.i.n.g. 🙂

  2. Sounds like your heart and soul and dreams are wrapped up in your writing Russ 🙂

  3. To sleep, alas to dream. Very interesting, Dr. Freud. i think that the story can only benefit from more imagination. Have fun!

  4. I think it’s wonderful. I dream my ‘characters’ often, and both of my books include a dream sequence that gives a clue (foreshadowing) to what’s to follow. Bravo! Keep on dreaming, my friend.
