Now I dont mean the kind where my mind wanders to visualising my book on a shelf in waterstones or in a shop window gleaming with pride next to my favourite authors- or the one where I win the booker award/ costa award/ any award for it….. Or even getting a publisher for that matter!
No not those dreams (and very doubtful ones but hey a girl can imagine right?) but actual fall asleep and the story comes to you type dreams! Ever had them?
Its where the story began- from a dream I had (also another story for a flash fiction piece called the doll factory came from a nightmare- link here https://itsjennythewren.wordpress.com/2012/10/13/the-doll-factory-october-flash-fiction-entry/ )
Sometimes I dream a scene to be written or have just wrote and its the most brilliant thing as if the characters have come alive somehow and directing me!
Steven King said that his books came from dreams!
So always keep a notepad on your bedside cabinet just incase!
