I’m still at work on the stories for Four in Darkness. Unfortunately, I’m a bit stuck at the moment.
I started to get bogged down in the middle of one, so I decided to skip to the ending, which I could see much clearer. (I’ll play connect the dots later.) I’ve already gone through several versions of the ending and finally settled on the one I wanted. Basically, there were multiple explanations and I picked the one that was the most intriguing.
Now that I’m writing it though, there are tiny details that I realize might not be plausible. It’s supernatural in nature, but real life has to line up with the storyline. The real problem is that the ending was part of a dream, and we all know how messed up dreams can be. Forcing what our mind’s eye dreamed into reality isn’t always easy. Like now. I might need a little help with this one.
All of my stories have come from dreams, but this is the first time one has really stumped me!
Does anyone else dream their stories? Do you know of a simple way I could iron out the details?
