What I’m writing this week:
I’m working on book 3 in my Dragon Hunters series and I have to say that disturbing dreams do help with the creative process of my writing. Too often I get so frustrated with the directions my thoughts take me that I have to sit back and wonder, “Where am I going with this?” That’s where the dreams come in. Maybe it’s my inner voice telling me where I need to go, or the main characters telling me where they want to be, but there’s nothing quite as exciting when you wake up in the middle of the night and say “Ah-ha!” This happened to me early—early Monday morning. I didn’t have to drag myself out of bed, but I did have to be quiet so I wouldn’t wake my husband up (who had the day off)
Needless to say, I used my new best friend, the delete button, and I re-wrote chapter two and started a completely different chapter 3. It’s a work in progress, but the words are there.
What do your dreams say to you? Do they push you in a new direction? Do they let you know you’re on the right path? Inquiring minds want to know.
