Monday Musings and Dreams with Aidee Ladnier
My dreams are huge sweeping epics about interstellar rescue missions and kickass princesses kidnapped by bad guys. Sometimes they are paranormal mysteries like the one about the young girl who fell into a cursed mirror. She has to pretend to be a character in a children’s book in order to solve the puzzle of how to escape and save the rest of the mirror’s hapless victims. I've had horror story dreams invade my sleep with beasts tearing apart their victims. Once my dream was an erotic encounter on a roller coaster full of dips and peaks and pleasure.
Going to sleep has always been easy for me as a result. I’ve got my own entertainment built in during those “wasted” hours of unconsciousness.
But early man knew what dreams were. They knew they were real, physical places only reached in when you’re alseep.
I think that’s why I’ve never written any of my dream movies into my stories. I’m a little afraid that the magical dreams will stop if they are suddenly duplicated here in the real world. I’m being given a glimpse of an alternate world and if everyone can suddenly see what I see, it’s like the camera will overload and the machinery will pop, sizzle, and die.
But that’s okay. Because I can create alternate worlds of my own to fuel my waking dreams. Worlds where time travel can help you be your older lover’s first time. Or worlds where talking cats try to encourage you to date more. I hope you’ll check out my novella, The Break-in, published recently by Dreamspinner Press
And come dream with me a little…
The Break-in is available at Dreamspinner Press, Amazon and all major booksellers.
