Author’s Note: I found an interesting little prompted journal at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago simply called 300 Writing Prompts. It’s published by Picadilly and has no attributable author, but the questions have been though provoking and I thought I’d share some with you.
Do you have any dreams that recur? Why do you think you continue to have that dream?
Sometimes, when I have hit a particular rough patch in my life, I have the recurring dream that someone punches me in the face and knocks my teeth out – gross, weird and scary. I usually wake up from those dreams making sure that I have my teeth or that they’re not loose. I’ve read that this kind of dream is a sign of insecurity and it tends to occur at times in my life where I’m questioning myself or decisions I’ve made. Fortunately, I haven’t had it in a while, but when I do it’s really unnerving.
Do you prefer to read electronic books or paper books? Why?
I used to be completely anti-electronic books, but this year I have surprisingly read several books on our Kindle. I like that I can carry more than one big book with me at a time and that when I finish one, I can immediately pick another one off the Amazon website. Despite the instant gratification, though, I still greatly prefer paper books.
Oh no! Not knocked out teeth! I can’t even handle wiggly kids’ teeth.
(Mine is always chasing or being soooo late for something and not being able to get there.)
Have you ever had the dream where you’re in high school and have to turn in your paper to pass a class and can’t get your locker open?” That’s another recurring dream of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
