Gifts from dream killers


I’ve had some dillies of ideas literally roll out of my brain either during deep uninterupted sleep or upon waking up. I suppose all those hints at writing before one’s brain awakens has some merit, yeah? Does for me at any rate. Luckily and sometimes not so luckily I have very vivid emotion soaked scenarios play out behind my eyelids. Serial killer dreams, death dreams, freaky Children of the Corn type dreams where I get to (yay me!) experience physical and emotional parts of these type of sunny moments as if I were actually living them.  All the sensations and feelings – terror, apprehension, grief, regret… a writer’s treasure trove.

Do you get ideas from your dreams? Do you remember your dreams?

Here is the beginning of my latest story ‘Severed’ – courtesy of an full length horror/suspense dream. That was a good night.


You never think your niece and nephew are just gonna wake up one day and want to lob your head off, do you ? I mean who would think it?
