Dare to Dream

The blank page is a warm blanket that an author can cuddle up under and nap.  They dream of worlds both seen and unseen, and the characters that those worlds contain.  Characters dance among the sugarplums, spinning yarns both big and small.  It’s only when the author wakes up that that blank page becomes a nightmare.  Therefore all authors need to learn to “sleeptype”.  Then the dream will awaken in the reader’s imagination, and the nightmare of writer’s block stays asleep.

  1. Yep, I’ve often thought about keeping a notebook by my bed. That way, when I wake up from a strange or vivid dream – ripe with ideas – I could scribble down what I remember. Except when I’m tired my handwriting becomes illegible scribble worse than chicken scratch and doctors’ notes.
