All in a Dream

A few months ago, I had a dream that really felt like a great Middle Grade novel. Of course, I wrote it down in as much detail as possible. This story has been brewing since then. I've been compiling notes and pictures and whatever else seemed to fit. All of these have been stuck in a folder and growing. It's really a story I want to tackle sooner rather than later.

Last night, the idea revisited my dreams at a later point in the story and really did a lot to develop the overall picture. The characters were more complete and vocal and there was a connection there. I knew them. Two I'm onto something.


  1. I think our dreams is one of the most fascinating ways of story telling.

    And being the mom of two middle grade students,we will be looking forward to your new book. Have fun with the creative process.


  2. Awesome! I love dreams so much, and I can't wait to read what you are creating in your subconscious!

  3. They always give me good ideas. I think this might be the first time that the entire idea has come from one though.
