You know how I was never going to be one of those writers who used their own dreams as fodder for fiction? Well, you might not have known that, but it used to be true.
Not because I have moral reservations about taking the inspiration in whatever form it greets you... I just usually don't have very interesting dreams. I mean, I have some WACKY ones, as evidenced here and here, but not really any story-centric or inspirational ones.
I guess the dream I had last night about a kid getting attacked by a giant spider wasn't really story-centric or inspirational, either, but it woke me up and wouldn't let me go to sleep again. Some of us call that a nightmare.
So I started writing it down and it turned into a story. Kind of fun.
Thanks for listening. Also, happy December!
