Have you ever have one of those dreams that you remember for years? The kind of sheer freakiness that you actually thought that up? Once, I was being chased by Gollum from Lord of the Rings. After miles, I decide I was tired of being afraid and running. I grabbed a pair of scissors and killed that slimey obessed creature. *gulp* That is something I would never do in real life. How did I get that in my head?
I think we've all had dreams of flying, dreams of super powers and such. Do you draw on those experiences for your writing? Or have you ever been trying to solve a problem or imagine a scene and found the answer while you were sleeping?
I found some interesting sites that talks about famous lucid dreamers, like James Cameron, director of films like Avatar and Titanic, Salvador Dali who attempted to put his dreams on canvas, and author Stephen King who has cited dreams as inspiration for various works.
Have you ever written down a dream? Was it a whole scene, or an experience/sensation?
