In My Dreams

Sometimes when I write, I’m not sure where it comes from. I see a photo / read a word / analyse a prompt and suddenly; there it is. The idea arrives like a beam of light into my brain, sent from goodness-knows-where, and the writing just flows…usually!

When I first started blogging, I used to overthink things. I tried too hard to anticipate my reader’s response and worried about making. Every. Piece. Amazing. It was exhausting.

Now I’ve let it go, I find writing easier and the quality of my work has improved – I hope you agree! I am also more motivated to write, which has in turn, increased my quantity too!

In fact, I’ve become so obsessed with writing, I cannot wait to arrive home from work, catch up on my favourite blogs via my WordPress Reader and start attacking whatever challenge in the universe has taken my fancy/ies today! I am even dreaming in Haiku and just to prove it, here’s one I wrote in my dreams last night…

nothing’s more divine
than hanging with friends of mine
and making char wine

Now, I have no idea what ‘char wine’ is – I looked it up on Google and apparently barrel char levels are a thing (how much barrels are charred on the inside before fermenting bourbon whisky)…so I guess my friends and I were making homemade whisky (never mind that in my dream we were also dressed as pirates and this Haiku was written on a flag)

At the very least, I’m impressed:

  1. that the Haiku makes sense
  2. it follows the correct 5/7/5 structure
  3. I managed to make it rhyme

Imagine what I could do when I’m conscious…

  1. I loved this. I can relate to the fun, energy blogging brings. Dreaming in Haiku? That’s a new level. Well done. Thanks for researching new information for us. I would have been satisfied knowing anything with the word wine behind it must be ok. Cheers.

  2. I can totally relate to your stream of consciousness style of writing. It works for me too. Anything can strike me a prompt or opening life or a central idea of my prose or poem and I start scribbling. I go so fast that I even didn’t stop to make any edits or fix any spelling mistakes.Hope I’m making sense,

    As far as your dreams post is concerned, I wrote something a while back on the similar lines.Check it out in case you have time.
