Between REM & Reality

3 posts in this topic

Okay, I'm just starting on this writing trip adn I want to know what you think about the beginning of my story. I know it's kind of corney adn sort of overused but I think I can make somethign out of it. I put the first paragraph adn then the bios of the characters of the story. If anyone has any ideas for me I'd be grateful wink2.gif

There is a place between REM and the conscious state of being. It is a world that you go to when you wake up but don’t open your eyes. In this world your dreams are as real as you, your fears are scarier then ever and, there is only one way out . . . living long enough to wake up. Welcome to Between REM & Reality.

Sounds alright to me.

You may need some way to bring your characters, or most of them, together - to connect them. Maybe they form a 'Dream Group' to discuss what they dream about and then they find the same things start occurring in them; or someone comes up with a mechanism to keep the sleeper at the right level, only it's faulty.
