The other night I was having a dream and right in the middle of the climax some random voice suddenly started talking.

“No, no,” said the voice. “That’s not the way it goes. Do it again!” And like a movie my dream rewound and it played out a different way.

I may not be the best writer in the world, but I’ve just discovered that I can rewrite my own dreams, and I’m thinking that’s almost a super-power.

Do-overs rock!


  1. Not quite the same, but if I have a dream twice I can shift the dream to make it match the way it played out the first time. Which is kind of weird because I almost never remember my dreams!

  2. I know I’m almost awake when I try to make my dreams go a different way. It never works.
