Okay, so as y’all may or may not know, I have really weird, really detailed dreams. Most of my dreams have plots, antagonists, and at times, they cant be stressful, dark, disturbing, or all of the above. Case in point: https://jackiesmith114.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/in-dreams/
Last night’s dream was probably one of the most disturbing I’ve ever had, and I realized as soon as I woke up that it wasn’t the first time I’d had it. Or I guess I should say it wasn’t the first time I’d visited that place in my dream. It’s so strange. There have been times when my conscious mind can’t remember a dream, but my subconscious dream mind will. In fact, in my dream last night, the person guiding me through reminded me, “You came here last year, remember?” And I did.
The people in my dream thought I would be interested in visiting this particular building because it was said to be one of the most haunted in the nation. And it was. I’m not going to tell you why though. I could barely get the word out this morning when I called my mom to tell her about it. I could tell early on that she was horrified that I’d dreamt something so dark, so gruesome, so I didn’t go into detail. I gave her a one-sentence summary. But the images and ideas have stayed with me all day.
That being said, I am doing my best today to think happy thoughts. Like fall! Pumpkins! Music! Parakeets! Two of my best friends and I are going to be spending Halloween in Houston at the Texas Renaissance Festival, so that’s something fun to look forward to! We’re going to go shopping for costumes next week. I’m also puppy sitting for those same two friends this week, so that’s fun. I haven’t had a puppy since I was two so I’m having a lot of fun with Glorious Dorian as we call him.
There’s not a whole lot new on the book front, except for some awesome new reviews for all three books and lots of new Instagram friends who have been so sweet and supportive in their reviews and pictures!
I once had a dream that my dad saved the world from alien invasion by challenging the aliens (who looked like Trinity from ‘The Matrix’ but were in fact the aliens from ‘Alien’… somehow…) to a cricket tournament and defeating them. It was completely unbelievable though, because my dad is only a pretty mediocre cricket player. 😉
I had a dream where my grandmother came back from the dead and referenced another dream I had forgotten. What made it so scary?
I really like your book signings! You think of the best things to write. Still read mine on Cemetery Tours every chance I get.
