Dreams

Has anyone seen INCEPTION? I'm intrigued, but, since an evening at the movies is wicked expensive when you add in the babysitter, I haven't made plans to see it.  But, since lucid dreaming plays a big part in Minder, I think I may have to go see it anyway. 

So, my question today is: writers, have you ever used the content of your dreams in your work?

I actually based my first, (unpublished) novel BAGASTANA on a dream I had. I know TWILIGHT started as an especially vivid dream of Stephenie Meyer's.

I have your typical nonsensical dreams, but I also have long movie-like dreams. These have given me a lot of ideas for stories.

The whole dream-sharing concept is crucial to my WIP's plot (but that's the only commonality between my book and the movie). I liked Inception, hubby did not...but he doesn't like plots that are that complicated (dream in a dream in a dream)

Yes i have. Some times dreams give insight into future or sometimes warning about something. I believe, dreams are source of natural creativity and writers should make use of it in their writings.

P.S. I know what you're thinking because Vicki told me that I did. Stopping by from her blog!

The MS I just finished was based on a dream, and the wip I just started is based on a dream too.
Sometimes I get plots in my head, but they seem to scream at me more in dreams.
They usually wake me up too. lol
