Do you dream about your books?

I can’t help but smile when I ask this question. As a matter of fact I dreamed of one story line last night. When my alarm went off this morning I was working on the turn that one of my books is taking. What’s funny is in my dreams the turn was easily taken, but when my fingers hover over the keys sometimes it’s more difficult.

My newest book “Finding The Right Time” came to me in a dream. I could see the start and finish clearly. The middle was a little fuzzy, but I knew how it would start and eventually how it would end. What’s frustrating is I usually wake up before the books finish.

In my dreams I can see my characters clearly as though they’re real. Well, in a sense they are real to me and I want them to be real to my readers. If I don’t bring about a realness of my characters, how can I expect my readers to make a connection with them. So when I dream of my characters I try to jot down every detail I remember when I wake up.

It’s crazy how the writer’s mind works. I think a writer has a extra brain cell because our brains work over time. 

Have you dreamed up one of your books before? Tell me about it, I’d love to hear the story.

As always, good writing and May God bless you…

If you could fly, Where would you Go?

Ok, people, I know we are all adults. Well some of us are. (Not including myself because I refuse to grow up!) Let’s step out of our usual train of stressful thoughts and dream a little.

I want everyone to just take a few minutes today to just sit back and close your eyes. Try to think of where you would go if you could fly. I know it sounds a little strange to some, but it relieves stress.

I tried this last night and my place was to Switzerland. I have always wanted to go to Switzerland, so I closed my eyes and this is what I saw:

The air was crisp and clean. No smog or polluted air floating around. The hills were alive (Yes I love The Sound Of Music) and green. I could see the snow capped alps just ahead of me. 

The quaint little hillside villages were dotting the land. I could almost hear the sound of an alpine horn as I floated over. I reached down and could feel the cool, fresh water of a mountain stream kissed with the melted snow…

Then the alpine horn changed to “Mama did you wash my gym shorts?” Well I got some stress relief though.

Ok, my challenge is to see how many people respond to this and tell me where you would go if you could fly? Come on we are all dreamers, we just have to be open and experience it.  Pass it on and let’s see where we can go through our dreams.
