Before sleep overtakes me I whisper for dreams that will take me away into the world of my WIP, where I can see my MC. Actually see him and experience the life that I am currently creating with him.
Many mornings I had awoken and tried to remember my dreams but I had come up blank. Not a single one that I remembered contained him or my special world. I was disappointed and felt very alone but something inside of me told me not to give up. I am a big believer in the impossible and I tend to fight whatever fights against me. So I couldn't stop wishing, it is not my nature.
I crawled into bed last night and I said my wish, thinking what the heck? What do I have to lose?
I saw him clearly, so incredibly vivid. He was standing by the lake that plays such a huge role in my story, staring out into a blood red night sky. The moon was unrealistically large and tinted orange from the red smoky haze. He didn't notice me but I noticed him. His coal gray eyes were wondrous and lost as he stared out at the black water. I could feel his presence, so real, so beautiful.
He had his hands in his pockets and his hair never moved for there was no wind. Everything was completely still. I didn't say anything and he didn't either. It was a silence well appreciated and loved.
I woke up and cried. The feeling after seeing him was indescribable and so unreal. I knew then that I have to finish this story for him. He has been in my mind all day, his voice clearer than ever. The crazy part is that I feel like he felt my presence. Even though we were silent, I have this hunch he felt me there and that he was just as happy and speechless as I was.
It was a great dream, one I will never forget. Hopefully he will visit me in my dreams again. I will wait for him every night.
What about you? Have you ever had a dream with your characters where they left you in awe from how real they seemed? Do you ever wish to dream about them?
Goodnight. May you all dream about wondrous possibilities, for nothing is impossible.
