1. Why do you think we dream?
2. Do you tend to remember your dreams or forget them as soon as you wake up?
3. Do you keep a dream journal and has it been productive in any way?
4. Have you ever had a premonition dream?
5. Do your dreams tend to be happy or more in lines with being a nightmare?
1. I think it gives our brain a chance to play with different situations and outcomes, helping us to process things, so we never even consciously knew were happening. In that way, it can eliminate unlikely scenarios and best advise us.
2. Sadly, no. Mine are usually gone in a heartbeat, although I have a feeling they show up in some of the fiction I write.
3. I do not, but I used to keep paper by the side of the bed to write stuff down. Even that wasn't fast enough for most of them. by the time I got my pad and put on my glasses, the dreams had vanished.
4. I haven't, although I've had some odd ones that stay with me. Like when my brother came home from Germany, walked into my room and talked with me. I was about seven and thrilled that he was home. Except he wasn't. Sigh... I had something similar happen with my other brother. He came in and stood at the foot of my bed and said, "My father is dead, you know." To which I answered, "Yes, he was my father, too." And he just turned around and left. In neither occasion were my brothers in any sort of physical threat. Weird.
5. Most of mine tend to be silly. This isn't to say that I don't have scary ones. There was one about zombies last night that I wish I could remember more to. It would have made a great story...
