A Dream to Some, a Nightmare to Others

From the movie GOTHIC, inspired by the events behind the writing of Frankenstein

Hey, guys. I’m away at a conference this week, but I managed to find something cool to share. Since I'm on the road, I thought now would be the perfect time for a post on nightmares. I usually have a least one when I’m traveling, but that's a good thing. Some of my favorite story ideas originated from my nightmares. I find it hard to recreate the same fear that I experienced--heart palpitating from some bizarre scene that had felt so real--but I do my best.

In fact one of the scenes I’m writing for Prometheus Unbound (Book 2, The Prometheus Order series) came from a nightmare I had while writing Byronic. For those of you who don’t know, the premise of the Prometheus Order series came from the actual events and nightmares that inspired the creation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
