Dream

Good grief I had the most amazing dream the other night! It went on far ages! It played out like a film or a thriller novel!

I woke up buzzing, this was my ticket, I could blog about it, or write it out for NanoWriMo, get a book deal followed by move rights! It was awesome!

I grabbed my pen and paper, and started to… Wait… Sally is squeaking. I better take her out or she will pee on the floor.

Lily and Sally out and pee’d, I am back in and oh god that was cold and wet. I need a tea before I start writing.

Kettle boiled, tea made, back to writing this awesome dream down.

Urgh, wait, hang on, morning breath… And it can cut through steel… OK, brush teeth, may as well wash and shave while I’m in the bathroom.

Back to my seat. Now for that truly unforgettable dream!

That awesome dream…

That once in lifetime dream…

That…

Was there a bear in it?… Or a Dolphin…

Bugger…

      I’m afraid to say a few days later, including yesterdays 13 hour nap, it has not come back.

      Onto the next dream I guess! šŸ™‚

    Yup! This sort of thing happens to me all of the time. I know if I want to remember it, I need to at least jot down a couple of notes before I do anything else. Of course, there are the rare dreams that seem so real, I remember them for years and wonder, “Did that really happen or not?”

    I can totally relate. I’ve got journals full of my recorded dreams. Enough to spend years on a psychiatrist’s couch. Some have been extremely empowering though and have been great messages from me to me.

    My most irritating dreams are the ones that are so good, so rich and fun, that you want to stay in them and, as soon as you realize this, your waking mind has meddled with the soup and there is no way back in – to that dream at least. All the places I could have been had that not happened….

    Oh no! I hate when that happens! And it’s always the ones that could constitute movie rights šŸ™‚ Always! Lol, thanks for sharing.

      I reckon the dreamers should go replace Hollywood execs and get our dreams recorded. šŸ™‚

    Ugh. I feel your pain. Gotta strike while the iron is hot, and all those idioms… my husband sent me this article about Joss Whedon and his thoughts on the book “Getting Things Done”, as well as just the usual question of ‘how do you do it all?’

    As I read the article, I thought, “wow. that is SO awesome!” Why can’t I do that? Then, I notice the still shot of the movie he filmed in his house. “Wow, that floor is clean…” I mused.

    Then it occurred to me. The thing in between me and creativity is the lack of a maid. šŸ˜‰

    Suffering for your art means not cleaning up after yourself, for years, until you can afford a maid.

    Useful note: I used to keep a small notebook and pen with me. Other times, I would just grab anything, even a receipt. I would jot down key words to jog my memory later, draw a picture, anything to remind me. Then I did whatever duty called and come back to it.

        There is ‘that’ problem. lol. I do occasionally end up with scribbles that resemble some ancient language. Especially the ones that wake me up at 4 in the morning.

    Loved this one. I had a dream a few years ago that was similar in nature. I vividly remembered it until I woke up. It was the meaning of life, why we are on this planet. I was very excited in the dream. I thought to myself that I must remember it and write it down the moment I wake up. But… C.r.a.f.t. (Can’t remember a frisking thing) it’s always the best ones that slip away.

      Deja Vu in a dream?… That is rather meta hah! Can’t remember doing that, but probably have and forgotten. šŸ™‚

    Tee tee. This happens to me all the time. I have the most vivid dreams, full soap opera sagas. They are incredible. Sometimes I remember, sometimes they are gone in a matter of minutes. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, I can rejoin a dream after waking up. Sometimes I dream of such horrors I can’t even fathom where my brain gets it from. Dreams are extraordinary!

      Sometimes I reckon Cthulu influences the horror ones… There is often no other explanation for where they come from… šŸ™‚
