Hi guys,I'd been very shy about my own writing until recently, because it meant talking about MD as well. Sometimes I DD about really ethereal stuff, with only vague images, and blurry feelings, and…Continue

Whether games are art is debatable and so is the question whether it is related to MDD but as a dreamer and thinker, looking to get much more out of my creativity, I have found it most satisfying to…Continue

Personally, I have to separate my daydreams from my writings. My daydreams generally just have a main character (me...) who is essentially perfect but is thrown into a complicated plot line only to end up with the perfect happy ending, every time. That's all well and good for in my head, but it's not enough for a real story. Real written stories are tougher, because you have to give your main characters flaws, you have to make them more ordinary and relatable. That's what I think makes them worth it.

I'm curious, does anyone else feel the same way?

I tried writing a novel too, but it sounds terrible. I know my DD stories, I just can't write them down that well, so I just write it down anyways no matter how bad it sounds and it does seem to help, because your thinking more about writing than daydreaming. I love to write, and I think we all should attempt to write our DDs out in a story. I am a poet, and that's how I express my emotions about my daydreams, so I feel it helps me. Go for it and write!

I would like to learn to piece together all my different scenes or write a completed novel. I tried to write a novel before. It did help the mdd. I stayed concentrated on one story. But, I had to write all my free floating ideas down first before I started on the novel. 

I'm going to start again.

everyday I come up with ideas that I have no idea or strength to make into actions, sometime it's nerve wrecking because I care about whatever idea I come up with, but as a dreamer you don't find people who agree with you as much as you imagined it in your mind.
