Now, I was floored. I LOVE DREAM SEQUENCES! (If I could have made that sentence written in glitter for emphasis, I would have!) Dreams are some of my favorite things to write and read. It never once occurred to me they could be overdone (I know that sounds dumb as I write it. Anything can be overdone).
In my lovely critiquers defense, I think she’s right about two of them (I have 5 total. Each around 200 words). I’m so glad she pointed it out to me because now she has me thinking.
There is one main reason why I LOVE dreams. I feel like I’m pulling back a curtain and giving my reader a raw peak at my characters psyche. I really believe that deep down most of us know what’s right and wrong and how to solve our own problems. Sometimes a dream can give us a deep insight in to ourselves. Sometimes they are nonsense :)
But now I am freaking out! Is this wrong? Are dreams annoying? Will it keep me from getting an agent? Help! Weigh in! Give me your feedback!
