This post is about dreams.
Oh, not those dreams about getting an offer for a movie deal while sipping margaritas by the pool. I mean the actual confused dreams of sleep and whether the dreaming mind has anything of value to offer in the way of stories. I say this because yesterday morning I woke up early with a dream-story in my mind. It seemed so perfect: unique and (almost) complete as a story. An hour later, I wasn't so sure about it anymore. Two hours later, Bah!
Now today, with some perspective, I'm interested in it again. I think what the dream gave me (that is, what I can actually remember of it) is workable as the seed of an idea, but it needs... well, it needs an entire story to go with it. Ahem.
Anyone here ever find inspriation from a dream? Real inspiration that lasted after waking up?
