To Sleep, Perchance To Dream...

Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives. ~ William Dement

I've had the most awful dreams lately. What do you suppose they mean?

Last night I dreamed I was being haunted -- my window blinds wouldn't close for me, but when I turned away, SLAM! Down they came. I'd hang up my jacket, it would fall off the hanger, over and over until finally the entire rod in the closet came down. I went out to lunch at Wendy's and mysterious muddy footprints followed me.

I'd never been so happy to wake up.

The two nights before, I had dreams of being chased. I don't recall all the details, but I was hiding and running, hiding and running. Always just barely a step ahead of whoever was after me.

Okay... anyone into dream analysis?

I just want to rest when I close my eyes, darn it.

I finished my first round of edits on Magic. I adore my editor, even when I want to cuss at her. We'll see what she thinks of the changes.

I managed to work a bit on my latest WIP as well, though the hero is beginning to annoy me -- the man will not do what he is told. I keep trying him to go an get things cleared up with his old girlfriend, and en route he'll make detours to see the heroine. Yesterday, I sent him to the old girlfriend's home, but instead of going straight to her ranch, he turned left into town and went to the business the heroine owns. Bad boy. I need to get things cleared up between him and the old GF before things can be resolved with the new.

Guess this story's going to be longer than I anticipated.

Happy Weekend! And don't forget to enter to win a book!

I hate scary dreams. Not much into dream analysis though so I'm no help there. Good luck with your wip! And congrats on finishing your edit pass!

No clue on the analysis part, but I'd figure out how to use the dreams in my writing. :)
