Where wild minds come to rest
I've been in the mood to write lately---spent the last 2-3 weeks working on an original story that is not from my daydreams. It's only one chapter, 7 pages long, and I still don't like it enough to share. Then today I thought, maybe I should try writing a story where I'm the main character. The words should easily flow and sound more natural to me. But what could it possibly be about that's interesting? Hm...perhaps visiting daydream worlds?
I imagined it to go something like this: I suddenly wake up on a plane surrounded by white space. I meet four other people there, who are just as confused as I am. For some reason, we can't remember our names, but we remember everything up to the last thing we did before we got here. The only thing we have in common is MD. From there, we get teleported to each of our daydream worlds, complete with characters and everything. Maybe the purpose is to solve our daydreams so that upon waking in the real world, we don't need them anymore, or something. I don't know. I've only thought about it for like ten minutes. xD
Anyway, you get the gist of it. How could it be changed, or what could be added, to make it interesting? What do we actually do in our daydream worlds? Do we become each other's characters, or are we just written in with our own lives? Do we retain our memories so that we look for each other? If anything, I thought of basing the main characters off of you guys, lol. The DD worlds would also be very different from each other, distinguished by genre, like scifi, fantasy, slice-of-life, historical, drama...or even visually, like cartoon or realistic.
Here's some random stuff that popped into my head: Like what happens if one of us dies in a DD world? And maybe there could be a mysterious person thrown in, like an extra MDer we didn't meet at the beginning. Maybe he's been stuck wandering in daydream worlds long before we ever showed up.
Or maybe it could be the other way around, like our daydream characters come to life?
Or maybe this idea should just remain as a fun little daydream? Lol~
If any of you have ideas, just throw them out there. I'm very curious to know what you think. xD
