Well hello again, awesome Moxie-Dude readers!
Last night I had the weirdest dream. Before I go on, I suggest that you not eat while you read the rest of this post. Partly because I’m STARVING right now and will have a hard time writing if I’m imagining that you’re eating. But mostly because imagining a woman of my age pregnant can be a little on the unappetizing side. (It worked. I’m no longer hungry.)
Oops! And I just gave away what my dream was about. Well not really. There’s more. Carry on.
In my dream I was “somewhere” (nowhere that I could recognize both in real life and in my imagination) and I was – of all things – pregnant.
The bizarr-o thing about this pregnancy was that I wasn’t actually growing a mini human in my tummy. I was building a collection of words. Kind of like the hamster had moved into the basement to set up the biggest game of Scrabble in the entire universe. Only the basement was my growing stomach and the game of Scrabble was the book I’ve been working on since I was four. Okay 24.
I tried Googling the meaning of this dream but couldn’t find pregnant and words and hamster anywhere. But I did learn that “pregnant” could mean giving birth to a project. That’s how I came up with the connection to my book.
My theory is that dreams are like breadcrumbs from the stuff that goes through our minds during the day: our thoughts, our fears and maybe even our future.
Note from the hamster: Dreams from the future? Are you on crack???
Note to the hamster: Dreams ABOUT the future. But irrelevant.
Yesterday my aunt asked me how I’m coming along with my book. In itself, this is nothing out of the ordinary but I guess her asking must have created a breadcrumb for the hamster to chew on because she’s French (from Drummondville) and barely speaks English and I’m an English writer.
See the disconnect?
With that said, I had better increase my daily word count schedule because clearly my unfinished book is getting in the way of my future unfinished books.
Okay. Off I go to work on my book.
Catch you later, awesome readers!
