    I Write Down My Dreams

    Story Ideas

    Since I have such weird dreams, I figured that they are fantastic source of ideas. And the best thing I'm only ripping off myself by using my dreams in my stories. It's a total win/win!It also makes for some interesting reading I look back and read some old dreams of mine.
