Where Do Story Ideas Come From? – Dreams

 Realms Of The Mind

Sweet Dreams… Do you have them? Maybe they’re not so sweet, and you wake up, heart pounding, trying to convince yourself that what you just dreamed didn’t happen? Yep, that’s me, and it happens frequently. So frequently, that I keep a notebook in my top nightstand drawer to record these dreams. Often I will dream an entire plot line and wake up able to remember it.

Dreaming also helps release writer’s block. I don’t get this often, but when I do, I make a point to fall asleep thinking about my story. Many times I awake with the answer to the stumbling block fresh in my mind. This probably has more to do with relaxation and letting my subconscious work while I’m resting, but either way, it is effective.

Tell me about your dreams. Do you dream complete plot lines? Have your own experiences led to dreams that would make fantastic stories? I’d love to hear about it.

About Kelly Abell

I am a writer, blogger, and graphic artist. My aim for you is to utilize this blog to help you improve your writing skills, and to educate you on the publishing business. If you need help with writing, want to self-publish a book and need advice, or just want to kick a story idea around to see what works best, that's what I'm here for. As I gain knowledge from editors and publishers, I will share that knowledge with you. As writers we should always strive to improve our craft and grow. A day should not pass where you haven't learned or tried something new with your writing. Many thanks to my Night Owl Friend, Lea Ellen Borg for editing my posts! Best to you and all your characters and stories. Write on, my friends...Write on.
