I do… sometimes. But there is one aspect of dreaming I wish I was able to do: lucid dreaming.
When you have a lucid dream, you are aware that you are dreaming and can control what’s going on within the dream: the environment, the characters within it, and the narrative.
I always thought this idea was fascinating. Imagine a place where you’re taking part in a story that feels real but is all contained within your head. Plus it’s safe because anything that happens isn’t permanent. If you’re a Star Trek fan like me, it would be like having your own personal holodeck. Sounds pretty cool.
So I spent all of 2021 writing a story about it. Three books, in fact. Lucid dreaming is at the core of that three book saga. I’ll share a few more details about it next month (or you can learn about it sooner if you join my reader group.) ?
