Last night I dreamt about a man with a wooden flute that could travel through time by playing the flute. I decided to follow him and discovered that he had numerous wifes and families in various time periods. At some point I learned the man was my father and I ended up staying with one of his many families in a modernish southern plantion. There was a brother and sister there as well and they sort of became my new family.

Another Whale(ish) Dream

In my dream last night I was walking down by a river (or some water way) and noticed a small group of people by the shore so I walked down to see what they were doing. When I got there there was a guy and two girls and an orca halfway on shore. I asked what they were doing and the guy pulled out a knife. I realized he was trying to kill it and told him to stop. He didn't act like he was going to stop so I punched him in the face. (lol) The girls tried to stop me but I threatened to punch them as well and they let me push the orca back into the water.

Publishing Dreams?

Last night I dreamed  I recieved an e-mail (exciting, I know.) from a beta reader that's reading my WIP right  now. In the e-mail she asked me what I planned to do with the novel when I am finished and how I was going to market it. The dream was  helpful because I've been trying to figure out that question for awhile now.

 Originally I planned on submitting it to agents with the hopes of getting a publisher interested. But the market has been changing. Most publishers won't touch my topic right now (there are vampires in it) and I'm worried that no matter how hard I work it won't be enough. I've been following the e-publishing trend as well and have started wondering if that is a smart option. It's quick, easy and inexpensive. And my book could be out there in a matter of weeks. But the dream made me realize that e-publishing is going to feel like accepting defeat. I know now that I at least have to try and find an agent. Maybe I won't be sucsessful. I may fail. I may have to go with e-publishing, but at least I'll know I tried my hardest to find my book a home. And that's something I can live with.

So I haven't been doing a very good job of posting on here lately. I've just been busy with life and such. I'm going to try and improve on that this week. I have come to the conclusion that TV and movies play a major role in the dreams I have, so at least I've learned something with this project.
