A few years ago, I had a painfully vivid nightmare. It kept me up the rest of the night, so I was at least smart enough to make use of the terror-driven insomnia. I sketched down the details of the dream easily, because they were so vivid and so close to real life. I tossed into my ideas pile and got back to working on my next novel.
I recently sent my latest novel work over to my editor. Afterwards, I poked around in my ideas pile to find my next project and I stumbled across the dream notes. Are You Ready? is essentially a bare-bones transcript of that nightmare. It’s short and simple, but it still gives me the skeevies even now because it seems so…plausible. Hope you like it more than I do!
