What do you dream about? I don't mean aspirations or goals. At night and during the day, what strange adventures does your mind create? There is a more important question, though. These dreams are wacky and full of potential. So what do you do with your dreams? Do you forget them, try to remember them, or do you write them down?
For me, I find more inspiration from day dreams or dreams I have during naps since they are easier to remember. From these I have drawn many a story idea. Some are filed away for future use and some have found homes on the pages of my novels.
But dreams are funny things. They are the product of our subconscious's interpretation of the knowledge we imbibe. Especially in my case, what I read, I dwell on. What I dwell on, I write. If I'm not careful ideas will slip in unaltered to my stories.
How do dreams affect your writing? Are they positive influences or a negative distractions?
