I don't normally remember my dreams. I remember my nightmares but not my dreams.
However, a couple of nights ago I had a dream. Which I remembered. And it was a good one.
And I remembered it for a day later. And I let my subconscious percolate on it. And it formed from an idea into a realised backbone for a story. And I even managed to find a way to incorporate it to tell the story (or my version) of how and why humanity disappeared off the Earth for a while.
I need to set time aside to do some writing to formalise this idea and backbone into a story.+Michael Barry
