August Writing Challenges: Day 9 - Dream-Catcher

August. The summer is nearly over. Kids are going back to school. You now have some time on your hands.  Okay, you still have a list of chores a mile long, but let's put writing at the top of the priority list, okay?

I am going to challenge you with a writing prompt every day this month. Are you up for it? I hope so.

The writing challenges will be about a variety of topics and hopefully cause you to dig into your writing toolbox to complete with emotional skill.

Watch out, I just might throw in a fun one, well, just for fun!

For the ninth challenge we're going to reflect on a recent dream.

Here is your challenge:

Dream-catcher: Write something inspired by a recent dream you had.

 Imagine a beautiful dream you had once. Now write a story surrounding that dream. Maybe the event takes place in that area, or perhaps that is the same dream of your character, and so on. Do you have recurring dreams? Can you recall them? Draw upon your feelings about the dream and if it motivates you, create a character living that dream. Be detailed with your description, characterization, where the character lives, how the character reacts in your dream and dialogue.

Go all out. Embellish if it makes the story better. Use your imagination. 


TIP: Dreams are a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep: an idea or vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real: something that you have wanted very much to do, be, or have for a long time.

Enjoy. I hope you realize you can recall more of your dreams than you thought.
