I have plenty of time on my hands right now.
i dreamt last night i was in a film and i woke up this mornin and could remember most of it, it was a good film aswell. If i had any writing ability i would seriously do it.
what about? I have a really detailed idea for a novel, I'll write it one day.
and someone trying to break free of his fatalist life.
do you think this dream had any significance.
in a similar vein, i had a dream that i was trapped at work. the central heating was on in the nmiddle of summer, but i was chained to my desk and couldnt leave. i was sweating and about to faint. but i couldnt leave because i had to add some "indicator" columns to an excel spreadsheet.
Mine has probably just come from me thinking about fatalism a lot in the past few days.
I dreamt meths had a new job and he was getting me a job there and then there's loads of other stuff but I can't remember :(
I'm going to start keeping a dream diary.
I had a few ideas and tried to write them but realised quickly how hard it can be.
http://www.nanowrimo.org has a good forum for finding people to help you with research and general tips.
in as much as I have a massive folder with about 1000 pieces of a4 in - I lost confidence.
It's a bit depressing.
and declared she should write it up as a novel. It was about tigers living in her house. It was shit.
was sophiacherryx....and we've never met before in real life!
I was mooching around the city and we bumped into each other and we were just wandering around.
Was I good company?
You had a red hair band on and we wandered around. I think we ended up on the set of Eastenders at one point - it was devoid of actors etc though!
and OMFG - I HAVE A RED HAIR BAND IN REAL LIFE! YOU MUST BE LIKE A MAGICAL WIZARD OR SOMETHING!

I really vividly remember the red hair band against your dark hair.
I think we wondered onto the Eastenders set because I watched it earlier that night and convinced my flatmate they film it "in the streets of London" and all the extras were normal people just going about their lives!
I was there too?
You've hijacked my chat with Sophia! You weren't in my dream Sarah, sorry.....this time.
How are your vocals coming along for our first Keef practice?!
I suppose it depends how you see me.
Curious, very curious.
when i get the time.
i've never tried. I set my target at a short story, which i thought would be more achievable. I managed about a paragraph. Before deciding the second half of that was rubbish and crossing it out.
i think im might have the first two sentences somewhere still.
they were pretty good.
do you want to collaborate. there's a gap in the market, i reckon there's millions to be made...
can we do mroe ones about architects raising structures in their heads together. or has that been done?
how about builders?
i think doing architects one would be cheating. I'm not sure that builders can really inspire the same glossy romantic sentiment, hmmm?
I'm a little worse for wear. I write them on my phone.
Then I read them back the next day.
They're always shit, along the lines of:
'WHAT IF MONKEYS ARE ALIENS???'
The first rays of the sun hit at 5:58. The gradual warming of my cheeks caused me first to rub my eyes, then gradually fight through the confusion that lies between sleep and the promise of a new day. I raised my body up gradually and scratched an insect bite on my side. I looked to the east. Then it hit me.
MONKEYS ARE ALIENS!
keep it coming
i did that.
i thought i'd had the best idea for a film EVER.
it was about a really nice man who wears white robes all the time.
then the final scene was him on a carnival float, surrounded by similarly dressed members of the KKK and he was crying a lot.
pretty massively rubbish idea, eh?
If it's called ROBE-O-TRON 3000 and stars Jeff Bridges, I'd watch it.
for false advertising when people realised it wasn't about robots but was about a man who dressed like he was in the KKK, but um, wasn't.
I suppose I could just tweak the storyline here and there.
It would work better if he had a stammer.
they thought he was in the KKK?
He should be called Kay, otherwise it just turns into kuh-kuh-kuh.
