Writing Dreams

Consider what the writing says, and to whom it’s addressed first. Very often the words are a message from your own subconscious or ego that need your attention.

The creative process. Many writers tell me that they dream of writing things before they actually put pen to pad.

Writing with footnotes is a subconscious message to be certain you’re carefully checking your sources of information with regard to a specific person or situation. Don’t believe everything you read and hear without some other confirmation.

If writing appears in a journal, this represents the need to record events carefully. This information will prove useful later.

Writing a manuscript that never gets finished, or finishing one that gets rejected, portends similar disappoints on the horizon.
