Re: Weird dream inside a dream
I've done the dream-within-a-dream thing, and it honestly terrifies me. I have occasional panic attacks in my sleep, and they are sometimes linked to this type of dreaming. I've also done more conventional lucid dreaming, which is okay.
I write fiction, and my dreams often inform my fiction. The first book that I put on Amazon began with a dream of a scene that ended up being about halfway through the book. I'm currently working on a rewrite/expansion of a rough draft I've had lying around for years, and the key to getting this going was a dream of a woman riding down the street on a lawnmower, shooting people with a nail gun (research tells me that what I dreamed about is a gauss gun, fwiw.) The first book I ever read came to almost in its entirety in a dream that involved a pacing blue tiger.
