I’d love to learn about your creative process!

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.

                                                              — Marsha Norman  

Funny, many of my dreams are novels. I have characters, plot lines and conflict. Rarely am I in my dreams. Instead it is like reading a good book or watching a gripping television show. I am drawn into the scene as an observer.

Others tell me that this is unusual but it is the way it has always been. Perhaps that is why the quote caught my attention. I just came back from my meeting of the Milwaukee Writer’s Circle and am thinking about my fiction pieces. None of them came from my dreams but I am sure that I process the story lines as I sleep and awake with new ideas. New ways that my heroes and heroines want to be portrayed.

Share your muse, your way of creating.  I’d love to learn about your creative process!

I had a discussion tonight about how difficult some people find it to get started. how difficult they find creating something from nothing. but for me it is so easy. Just give me a pen, paper or a computer and I fill the blank space with words.

  1. I dream as an observer sometimes, but mostly a participant. I’m a big lucid dreamer, in fact so much I had to ask to actually get real sleep as I was so tired from being awake while I was asleep! I haven’t used a dream yet as an inspiration, but it would be a cool idea. I’m the kind of person who gets inspiration all the time. I had no idea that not everyone was creating stories about everyone and everything they saw. Now I know that this is the sign of a writer. My issue is too many story ideas and not enough time to develop them!
