Dream stories
I woke up this morning in one of those dreams where I wish I could have stayed asleep and seen how it turned out, because it seemed like a really great story was developing.  Unfortunately, I can't really remember much; considering that I usually can't remember why I walked across the room, it would be odd if I remembered my dreams well.  The key is not so much the actual narrative thread, since even as poor as my dream memory is, I know they are chaotic; if I remembered the whole thing I would see its reality shifting and jumping.  What I really wish I could hold onto was the understanding that I feel, as I'm experiencing the dream, that I understand the dream world and how what I'm seeing fits into a bigger world that makes sense.

Mostly for my own amusement, I'm going to try to record what bits I can remember of this dream and why it was cool, in the hope that I might get enough to actually write a story later.  If I can manage to capture the non-human psychology that I woke up feeling I knew, I might really have something.
