writing from your dreams
I am writing a lot of film script at the moment and recently have came up with what 'i think' is a sound idea for a feature so started get bits and pieces together but i was really stuck for an opening scene, which in film is quite important, So i am lying in bed thinking, thinking but nothing coming so fell asleep.
I had a dream that night which fitted in with the film script and it gave me the opening: it is monumental: it has also changed the whole course of the script . It was like a moment of eureka, quite a nightmre sort of dream which made me wake instantly, but i just grabbed a pen and started writing it down, and the story i feel has been made better. now i keep a pen and paper on my bed at all times, and when i stir form a dream i write it down it kind of inspires in to all sorts of things.
You could even go as far to say that you can inspire how you dream and in doing so create plots and characters and situations for writing.
Do you know scientists say that you can only drream in black and white? i don't agree with this.
