Welcome to the dream...


Have you ever dreamt of something

that was so real and vivid to your imagination? And when you woke up, you found that it was just a dream and it was not true? Have you ever dreamt in living colours whereas you could taste, smell, hear and touch everything in it and you just knew in your heart that it is real?  Have you ever had thoughts and feelings that were so strong that you just had to write them down before they went away forever?

The dream is alive!

"Sometimes the only thing standing in the way of your writing a great story or poem, is you." You may already have written a masterpiece but are afraid to show it because you wonder what everyone thinks about you. Well, I'm here to tell you that it's just not about you anymore. I mean, once your thoughts and feelings have been realized, it becomes part of something greater than yourself. That is one reason why you may feel good, as your spirit freely moves to convey the message you choose to express, through writing a story or a poem.

Show us how you dream...
