So after my dream post the other week, I stumbled across another author who also dreams her stories. I’m glad I’m not the only one! I had another great dream this past weekend. Good enough that I spent four hours thinking it out in my head.
Dreams aren’t the only time I come up with good story ideas. For some reason, driving works for me too. It must activate some sort of beta waves where I’m not really paying attention to anything but the road. I’ve come up with a couple good ideas that way. And on my four hour car ride home Monday, I was able to spin that dream into a full-fledged story, playing it out in my head like a movie – dialogue and all! It was very cool. I won’t be able to remember most of it, but I figure I have about the first third of the book written out in my head. Now all I have to do it get it on paper.
I was waffling on doing Nanowrimo – I wanted to get back to editing my Demon book, but now I’m wondering if I don’t want to just get this dream-story written. Most if it is there already in my head, I just need to plot out the second half and I’ll be good to go.
