Kitty Felde – January 20, 2011
Have you ever dreamed about writing a fabulous play? Usually such dreams involve a Tony or a string of productions or actors like Alec Baldwin and Colin Firth fighting to play roles in your work.
But do we ever dream about the actual WRITING of a play?
Of course, I can’t remember most of it. But even in my sleeping state, I knew that I’d forget 99% of the wonderful plot devices, character development, sparkling dialogue, etc, etc. So I kept telling myself in my dream to remember one thing. Just one thing. And when I woke up, that one thing is all I remembered. It boiled down to two words: vegetable juggling. Which actually meant something to me and made its way into a scene I was writing.
It’s the only time I’ve ever had this experience. How about you? Have you found a way to tap into your subconscious? Tips, please!
