I awoke in a panic, flailing in bed and sitting up. “NO!” I screamed. My heart racing and short of breath, my eyes darted around the room, trying to figure out where I was.

I had just had a dream that was so intense that it woke me up and sent me into a panic. I don’t recall the story of the dream, but I recall being so into it that after I awoke and came to my senses, I thought I should write it down immediately and turn it into a story. Of course, I fell back asleep instead of writing it down and no wit is lost.

I have had several dreams throughout my life that seemed so intense while I was in them that turning it into a story felt like a sure hit. But for some reason, dreams are always better when we are experiencing them rather than when we are re-telling them.

I’d like to invite you to share any experiences you’ve had with dreams. Did you turn it into a story? And if so, how did it turn out?
