30 Days of Blog: Author Things --Sleep

I get some of my best ideas from my dreams...from those times when sleep is my friend, when my knee is not aching and the bone spurs are not aggravated which make the sheet hurt me...when my kittens realize there is an entire bed and they don't need to sleep on top of me...when my mind has quieted enough to get to stage 4 REM...

It's rare when all of those things happen at the same time, and usually as soon as they do, I have to get up to use the restroom...and then I have to start the process over again...

But when the dreams come, some of my best story ideas come with it. I met Arianna in a dream and instantly knew she would be the heroine of Arianna's Honor and Arianna's Destiny. I met Ali and Sam and Ben in a dream and knew Broken Trust  would be followed by Redeeming Trust (though I had not yet met Ali's match yet.)

I have so many ideas that come from my dreams (when ColorNotes really comes in handy yet again because I can record enough of the idea to remember it in the morning).
