My new short story is finished and for the moment it’s called ‘The Echo of Love’. It still needs a bit of tweaking but I managed to successfully get most of my dream down on paper. It’s the first time I’ve ever done that – dream to story. It was a weird experience. The dream left me with a lingering sense of loss and disconnection which was impossibly hard to translate. And like most dreams it didn’t make sense. But I remembered it two years later and became obsessed with the idea that it should become part of the Sentients of Orion universe.
So please tell me, have you ever written a story based on a dream? I’d love to hear about it.
