The Bible discusses several ways that God communicated His will to human beings. To some, He spoke directly. To others, He provided visions. Others heard only a voice. But to some, He communicated through dreams in the night.
Many people describe the experience of holding their first published books in their hands as being like a dream come true. Or they will say, "I've dreamed of this moment." But I wonder, how many people can recall an actual dream depicting -- or predicting -- such a situation? Have any of you authors had such an experience?
In a previous post I described having a dream of a situation that became a scene in my novel, Latter-day Cipher. I know of another circumstance in which a dream became a novel, too. Carole Whang Schutter (who had never written a novel) describes a dream she had of a little girl, dressed in 19th century prairie dress, all alone. She began to wonder what episode of U.S. history would have corresponded to that image, and discovered the story of the Mountain Meadows Massacre. That let to her writing the book, September Dawn.
I'm wondering -- is that an experience that other authors have had?
Questions, I have questions.
Dreams, I have them too. Do you?
