I just dropped in to see how this worked. I intend to write a few books when I get some space in life to allow me to focus on writing. I have a very twisted mind and dream like I'm in the cinema. I want to use my sleeping creativity to write at least one fiction horror story. I also have a huge desire to write about my family & life. One of those "This is a true story, only the names have been changed.
I just read this book, David Lynch's book Catching The Big Fish. There's some stuff about transcendental meditation in there, so if you hate that kind of thing, skip it. But there's a lot of other good stuff about creativity in there, and what you said about dreams reminded me of some portions of that book. It's a good one to check out if you're interested.
