dreaming opens doors--are you willing to walk through them?

Confession: Until I started writing, I never paid much attention to my dreams. They were what woke me up in the middle of the night and frankly, although I knew they were necessary, I could have happily done without them. But once I started writing, I realized something. When you dream, your mind goes places that you don't expect it to. That maybe you--when you're awake--would be afraid to go. That make you face and think about things that challenge and, to be honest, scare you. Not all my dreams yield stories. But the ones that have, like the one where Alice, from Living Dead Girl, showed up and demanded I tell her story night after night until I did--those dreams are special. Those dreams are worth listening to. Those dreams are what push you to write things you never thought you could.
