Now I think that it is safe to assume that we have all had a dream where we meet a famous person that we all admire to some degree, you know how the dreams go. Suddenly they appear in your vision. “Oh my goodness,” you say! “They are talking to me! I have so much to learn from them.” From all the dreams absurdity, suddenly it takes on a much more realistic tone, subtracting the fact that you now have a feeling that this time is continuously fleeting that you will forget something important.
This happened to me just last night. I had a dream, supposedly watching Into the Spider-verse and then suddenly things changed and George. R. R. Martin was there too. Now to be more original, I didn’t ask about the latest book; instead, I was asking him for writing advice. The exchange went a little like this:
So how do you stay motivated to complete things?” I was asking
He took a breath, suddenly a rush of memories came back of all the memories I had of all the interviews, and I tried to pick the best one that would suit him, so it came out where he said, you just gotta write and finish that first draft.” I had remembered hearing that in an interview done with Steven King, the ironic thing is that, it wasn’t Martin who said this at all it was actually King,
it was merely my own mind trying to get me to do what needed to be done. Oh and for the final seconds of the dream I was sad that I hadn’t gotten my box set of his books signed, though I suppose that is just something to remember to do if and when I finally get to meet him in person. You probably know what you need to do, you just got got a little push even if that push is from your own mind pretending to be a famous person.
