Three Lives in One

It’s happened. Dreams of real life and imagined life life via one of my fiction stories joined together into a mind-tripping dream meld last night. My mind replayed a combined sequence of challenging times that I actually lived through, through in a bad times that happened to others, and added scenes from a fiction story I’m polishing.

I believe I accidentally set myself up for it when I added a brief dream sequence to my story It Was Her Eyes late last night and shortly later went to bed. A Beta Reader had suggested I consider adding a dream sequence (which I think is a cool idea) and when I came up with one that helped the story, I went with it. Then it went with me as I slept. As Spock would say, “Fascinating.”

With Love,
