There’s More Than One Kind of Dream
I often come up with concepts for writing in my sleep. I’ll wake up with what I feel is a great idea for a story and, in my half-awake state, debate writing it. I always decide not to and the ideas fade from my mind, but sometimes I wonder what kind of material I would have if I had written them. Ideally, I would feel like I have the time and freedom to sit down and write every good idea that pops into my head. I would probably feel more content and stable and actualized, then. More myself. Living a more enriched existence. I dream of a day when I don’t have so many worries hanging on my mind, and it can fly freely and effortlessly on the wind of inspiration.
