I fell asleep dreaming about writing a story about a princess. I then dreamed that I was a princess writing a story. She (I) wrote pages of notes…in my dream. Woke up and realized all that writing was wasted. I hate when that happens. (I once wrote a whole page essay in high school to wake up and find the essay gone).
I actually bought a voice-to-text program for these exact situations….when I’ve had a dream I want to remember and have lots of thoughts I’m trying to hold in my head before the details and then the dream itself slip away from my being awake. Ironically, I’ve had such congestion from allergies that my throat is raw and I can barely speak today.
