Odd Writerly Brain

I had a story-dream last night--long and detailed, unfolding around me like a hologram movie I could stand within.  Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman played key roles.

Then I woke up in a dark movie theater, and it took me a moment to realize I'd fallen asleep during a movie I was seeing with the students and instructors of Viable Paradise.  sartorias leaned over to tell me she'd poked me in the ribs because I'd been snoring.  Then, because I was so excited about the story-dream, I whispered the whole thing to sartorias and skzbrust while some other film played on the screen.

Just before I got to the climax scenes, I woke up to the sound of the dog barfing beside my bed.

After cleaning up that problem, I wrote down everything I could remember from the dream within a dream.  It's actually quite workable, though the part with the murderous sea lion is just plain silly.

:) I thought it was very kind of you to wake me rather than continue to let me snore. I think it's my brain's way of telling me, "Sherwood won't let you make an idiot of yourself in front of other people." Hee.

Oh, that's awesome! Your brain knew just what to do...and had an entertaining way of telling you, LOL.

However, the dog could have barfed AFTER it was over in a perfect world.

Yes, the dog has remarkable timing. I now know where the last of the cream cheese ended up. The evidence was the thick, foil wrapper beside my bed and the shame-faced dog standing over it.

If Ty Handsome didn't have an iron gut, he would have eaten himself to death countless times in the last decade.
