Wow. Bummer. You guys do what you need to to keep going, but I'm going to have to bow out. I'm more here to goof off and express my opinions than I am for serious writing instruction--which is good, because I'm only here once a week, at the most. I don't have a computer or internet access. As a resu...

Speaking of shocking crude stuff, ever read any Whitley Strieber? I've never been able to finish one of his books. Seems like one of his favorite themes is giving his characters orgasms by some really disgusting, bizarre way they really can't live with/or through. Like in the Forbidden Zone, there a...

Hmmm. Have I offended anyone? I sure hope not. When I said "narcissistic ramblings," I meant me. As for Dean Koontz, I don't know...I may try something of his, since I really did like that poetry book, but if I don't like it, ya can't make me! (Seems like every time I mention my dislike of Dean Koon...

Tuesday, I did a private, candlelit reading of Dean Koontz's Through the Paper Doorway. It's a book of silly poems for kids, and I don't even like Dean Koontz, but some of them were actually pretty good. :-D

So I look in my new writing day planner, and I see "Order sample copy of Zahir" (as in Zahir: Unforgettable Tales), but I don't know who to make the check to: Zahir, or the submissions editor? So no Zahir. But then a client where I work mentions that her surgeon is a Dr. Zahir. Is this just a coinci...

Enough of this narcissistic rambling about dreams. Who would ever buy a book like that, even if it did make it into print? So it's back to the drawing board.

Now I just need to focus and WRITE something...

So of course I'm reading How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy by Orson Scott Card.

I'm sorry to hear that, Mlou. I'm afraid this guide to dreams isn't really comprehensive. I know lots of people who get up or move around in their sleep. I haven't done it in a long time, but I used to walk and talk in my sleep, sometimes both at once, which, according to the experts, is theoretical...

2B. Is it all right to misbehave when you're lucid? Nothing a dreamer does in a dream has a direct effect on the physical, waking world, but there may be consequences in the dimension of Dream. If one believes an action to be wrong, and does it anyway because they know they're dreaming...It is simpl...

2A. Creativity in Dreams When the dreamer paints or sings or tells a tale that they first painted, sang, or told in a dream, it belongs to them. When a dreamer paints what they saw in a dream, or sings what they heard in a dream, or writes what they read in a dream, they should acknowledge this. No ...

Il. About visiting real world places in dreams

The dreamer should journal everything she remembers about this place, and compare what she knows with what really is. This does happen, more often than one might think.

Ii. About illness, diagnosis, and healing

It is possible to dream a diagnosis of a medical condition one was not previously aware of; it is also possible to be ill, and dream, and wake up healed. This is not something I think needs to be explained; we as dreamers should simply be thankful.

Id. Can dream people be injured?

It my belief that Dream People can be injured, and may even appear to die--but because of their noncorporeal nature, neither injury nor death is a permanent state for them.

Ic. About bodily functions So when the dreamer is in the dimension of Dream, and eats, or drinks, or makes love, or gives birth, or urinates, or vomits, or performs any bodily function whatever, it is with the body in which they are dreaming, and not the body in which they wake--that body is still a...

Ib. Are dream people real? Then when a dreamer falls asleep, their soul/mind/vital essence journeys, bodiless and invisible, to that place where dreams are; from there the dreamer, all unknowing, takes on a body as like their own as can be found, in which to explore and experience this world; if non...

Ia. Are dreams real?

There is a separate world, an alternate dimension, governed by the private thoughts and emotions of all who live there, and those of all who visit. It is a beautiful, hideous, confusing, disturbing, fascinating place. It is Dream.

Sorry, Jill, I'm so blocked right now it isn't funny. All I can think of is "the Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (I think that's her name.) Try it sometime--it's really creepy.
