8 Sentence Sunday on Dieselpunks #8
I love dreams in fiction. I love dream sequences, there are quite a few in my novel. And I love the atmosphere a dreams can create in a story. Dreams are powerful tools for a storyteller, they can reveal the character’s innermost thoughts and fears or desires. They can let a memory surface. They can create a riddle to solve.
I love dreams both when a write and when I read.
One of my main characters, Sinéad, has a long relationship with dreams… though at this time in her life, that relation isn’t too good.
What? What should I do? Nothing she wanted to.
Her body became heavier, her eyes demanded to close, still she fought that urge, because she feared what sleep would bring. She let her hands fall. There had been a time, when she was a kid, that she had fought the same fight.
But dreams are your friends, child.
Then why do they scare me?
