I’ve had this dream echoing through my memory since I had it a couple of nights ago. I now know that I have to make it into a short story, so I’m working on that.
But, my writing challenge is this. For at least a week, write down your dreams as you remember them in the morning. Take what you remember and see if you can make any of the dreams into a story. That’s where most of my ideas come from actually. They’re echoes of dreams coming to reality… well fiction. 😉
I’m sure that there are a lot of people who do this, but it helps me a lot. Even if my dreams are mundane and won’t make good stories, the actual process of remembering them and writing them down is good practice for details.
Anyone ever take their dreams and make them into stories? How does that work for you?
