Dreams

Dreams are extremely important.
You can’t do it unless you imagine it.

~ George Lucas

Speaking of dreams, I had a doozy last night. And it feels familiar, like I’ve had it before.

I lived in a house in the very exclusive Dominion area in San Antonio, Texas. The house was huge with a pool just outside the door. I sat at a glass table eating breakfast and reading ads from the newspaper. Only these ads were “live” ads that talked and described the items on sale at a department store. I wondered aloud when they’d make ads interactive so I could ask useful questions like, “Would that TV fit in my entertainment system cabinet?” The Progressive woman looked up from her ad and said, “Well, have you measured the space?”

I have to put that in a book.

Yesterday, I got my butt in gear. I wrote nearly a chapter. All of it sex. And I really, really liked the sex I wrote. My hero’s a big dude with very commanding ways. *sigh* I’d like to finish the story today or tomorrow, but I can’t keep them in bed forever, so today’s likely to drag as I figure out what they’ll say to each other when they aren’t acting like bunnies.

    Hey Delilah! Glad to see your groove came back so quickly for your writing :-D

    I mention this, because I am curious about your erotic urban fantasy. What did bits you have given us, about your story has made me extremely interested in it.

    I would also like to ask about your medieval fantasy story and SOW novella.

    When I last asked you about the medieval fantasy, you said you were stumped on the motivation of the heroine. Did the conference give some insights in her perspective?

    Have you decided the direction you want to take with your SOW novella?

    Familiar dreams tax me a little. I spend a lot of time dragging up bits and comparing them to when I had it before. Sometimes its just a place that is the same. Others its the same dream and I know it while dreaming it again.

    Good to hear you are back on track. Hey – it’s okay to leave them in bed (or by the wall, couch, chair, showere, etc). We’re willing to put up with it if it makes your life easier. You can see, we are givers.

    I swear you’ve had this dream before and mentioned it on the blog or the Rose’s loop. The “live” ads sounds so familiar!! Maybe you’ll figure out how to work the details into a new story!

    See? I knew I’d had that dream before. Although the Progressive insurance lady is new I think. :mrgreen:
