Do you ever have dreams that devastate you when you wake up and realize that it wasn’t real? As a child I remember having dreams where I’d discovered the secret of flight, only to awake and find that secret gone. It seems my dreams have shifted since I was a child–though I’d still jump to discover the secret of flight.

Last night I dreamed that I walked into a coffee shop and found Patrick Rothfuss and Neil Gaiman sitting at a table talking and writing. I obviously walked over and they then invited me to sit and write with them. It was amazing! I respect both authors immensely and consider them major influences in my writing. I was deeply saddened to wake up and realize that it was only a dream. But who knows? Maybe someday I will have such an opportunity. Anything’s possible.
