Cinematic Dreams

A long time ago...a loooooooong time ago now, I wrote about how my dreams can become like movies. Well, for the past two days I've been having these really crazy cinematic dreams that play out like I'm really living them. They jar me so much when I wake up, that I have to sort of readjust my mind and remember what world I'm experiencing! So weird. This past one I can't really remember much of, or else I'd do some dream symbol research (for fun's sake) to see what my subconscious is pondering without me knowing...Hmm.

Anyway, I should start writing in my journal again (my print journal ;-)) to see if there's a sort of pattern developing. Who knows, maybe a story can come of it!

In other news, my mom got this fabulous new catalog from Gold Coast Africa and there are some beautiful things in there! Being a fantasy fan I noticed right away all of the Af-Am fantasy themes in there. I circled a porcelain Fairy doll, a knight and I was thinking of getting a mermaid also. This got me thinking how awesome it is in this day and age to have an variety of cultures within different themes. Fantasy is traditionally of a Eurocentric nature which started my drive in writing different cultures in the fantasy genre. Ursula K. Le Guin tends to write like this as well and she's one of many authors on my 'To Read' list.

I hope to continue to see more diversity in the speculative genre in literary format as well as the big screen.

Hi Rae,
Please be sure to post what you find out about your dreams. I'd be greatly interested in knowing too. Um, how about a peek into your mind? Any of those vivid dreams you care to share? :)

Agh, I so should write them down because I keep forgetting and then I end up forgetting the dream! lol.

I'll try and think back though hehe.

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
