Are you a daydreamer?

This month (well until my honeymoon :D), I will be participating in Blogme MAYbe. This wonderful idea is the brainchild of SaraMcClung and is a weekly blog format with an easy schedule to follow. For more information and join the fun (you can at any time!), simply click on the banner created by the super-duper-talented Tracey

 

On Wednesdays, the prompt is: May I ask something about you?

I have always daydreamed. As a child and as a teenager, I used to tell stories out loud in my kitchen, even trying out my foreign language skills or I could just get lost in my thoughts. I still do it 😀

 So tell me were you a daydreamer? What did you dream about?

  1. What a great question! I am such a daydreamer. My daughter is too. My husband always teases us about being lost in space or space cadets. But I wouldn’t change it.

    Yes, definitely, often dreams are about people, long gone or still in my life, or strangers, but very vivid. Some become characters in my writing 🙂

    Definitely. I have always been. Am still. Sometimes, they get the better of me. Its why I can’t watch horror movies – when it gets quiet, my mind takes over and I scare myself silly! 🙂

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Haha 😀 I can relate with scaring yourself silly…I still watch scary movies but sometimes I jump for no particular reason if the house “makes” a noise 😀 My hubby regularly makes fun of me for this!

  4. Oh my goodness, I was (and still am) a massive daydreamer. I created an alternative life for myself. I had a twin sister and I was adopted etc. etc. I even wrote this alternative reality down for a bit … makes for interesting reading!

    Love this challenge, I’m doing it over on my blog too!

      Before hubby and I got together but were already friends, I daydreamed about our future together, on how he would realize I was the one 😀 and it’s even better than in my dreams.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      😀 I also daydream about my stories, about moments that may not have made it to the paper but still happen to my characters…

  5. I don’t think I am, but I know I am. (does that make sense?) Like when I think about my day, I think about all the stuff I got done. I feel very accomplished, like my brain was on all day long thinking and planning and doing. But if I look deeper, about half of the day was spent daydreaming. LOL

    Excellent question!

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      Thanks Katy 😀 Like you my daydream feeds into my writing…It is helpful to type away those stories when we have so many in our heads.

  6. Well, like I mentioned on my blog the other day, I had a zillion imaginary friends as a little kid, so I guess I was then. Now, I’m more likely to drift off into thinking about my real life in the middle of reading a novel–sort of a reverse daydream! I think it’s like how mathematicians discover formulas in their sleep or in the shower…reading fiction absorbs just enough of my brain to let me mull over other stuff in the background, and when it’s done cooking, it’s like it pops up over the words on my page.

    • Elodie Nowodazkij says:

      I don’t remember imaginary friends but I did talk regularly to a little spider on my wall (before I got scared of them) and to my pets 😀 Funny also to see how the brain works…

  7. I get my stories from my dreams. That sometimes means I daydream (as if watching a movie screen) what happens in my stories, but mostly they come from nighttime sleep.
