Since I use my dreams for story inspiration, they tend to have ongoing narratives. Check out the most occurring ones below:
Dream Technology or “Dream Tech” is the idea of having a computer interface or operating system that uses people’s brains. This interface would seem like dreaming – the body remains still, but the users experience lifelike experiences. Over the course of the narrative, it goes from programming, to military training, to secret communication, to tracking people down, to the dangers of such technology. Terms I use describing the dream are ones I plan to use in stories based on this concept:
This is a branch of the narrative above. Even before getting into game development and design, I would have dreams about programming, developing, and beta testing games in the dream space. Some make no sense, but some were interesting.
These are apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic dreams. They usually aren’t that bad.
These dreams probably come from the fact that I’m no longer working in journalism and I enjoy investigating things.
