When do you dream?

Yep, not WHAT but WHEN?

"All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." -- T.E. Lawrence

I proudly dream during the day, and yes -- I do intend to act upon my dreams until they become my reality. I have been doing so for years, and will continue to do so.

How about you? Are you a "Day Dreamer" like me? What are your dreams--and are you acting on them NOW?


P.S. I will be doing a couple of guest posts this week. So in case my blog just isn't enough Awe-Sara-ness (which is a way cooler word than "awesomeness") for you, stay tuned for more information on that! :D

I'm totally a daydreamer! I rarely dream at night because by the end of the day, I think my brain is too exhausted to be creative. haha

I think writers are natural day-dreamers. I have entire separate lives mulling around my head -- those of my characters and then mine. The key is keeping them straight LOL!

Total daydreamer! When I was going through boxes in my dad's garage, I came across one of my report cards from elementary school. I had straight As, but one of the teachers had written "while Jennie excels at her schoolwork she seems to spend a lot of time with her head in the clouds." We laughed so hard. If I can find it again, I'm going to frame that! I dream and I act them out constantly.

I dream my life away and wouldn't have it any other way. I can't even imagine what life would be like without dreams. Nope. Don't want to!

Yep, I'm totally day dreamer. I've made lots of dreams come true. I married a good man. I performed as a professional opera singer. I owned my own, successful, photography business. I had kids. And now . . . my making my writing dream come true. :)

I have always been a day-dreamer, although I never thought of myself as one. Hmm.

I love this post! And I dream both at night and during the day. I am living that dream each and everytime I push forward in pursuit of publication.

I am a shameless daydreamer :) Your post reminded me of a quote from the book, Ben-Hur:

"Men speak of dreaming as if it were a phenomenon of night and sleep. They should know better. All results achieved by us are self-promised, and all self-promises are made in dreams awake. Dreaming is the relief of labour, the wine that sustains us in act. We learn to love labour, not for itself, but for the opportunity it furnishes for dreaming . . . Living is dreaming. Only in the grave are there no dreams."

I daydream probably more than I should! But I do it without the least bit of shame. So thumbs up to dreaming!! Looking forward to guest posts! ;)

I am such a dream! Constantly. I have this quote in my bedroom - 'Live your dream, don't dream your life.' It helps me focus and keep balanced. (Just started following.)
