Writing Prompt 10/14/13

Keep track of your dreams this week and everything down what you remember. Accuracy of detail is more important than accuracy of sequence. If you don’t dream or remember your dreams every night, then stretch your recordings over a longer period of time. The thing to do after recording several dreams is to take those images, as weird or mundane as they may be, and separating them from the act of dreaming itself, use them in a poem or short story of any length.
