I think it is the key to self-awareness, and to becoming a more powerful fiction writer. I am returning to fiction writing after many years of not writing. I was at Bread Loaf Writer's Conference twice in the 80s, studied writing in college (UCSC).
I have read some of Memories Dreams Reflections (Jung) and some passages from Freud on dreams.
At times I have recorded them regularly. I would like to delve more deeply into them and share at times with others.
I have had a long-time interest in dreams. Freud and Jung interest me greatly. Surrealism is fascinating to me, and collage (these I think emerge mostlyl from dreams). I think the best fiction and art come from archetypes, which present in dreams.
