On Dreams and Ryan Gosling

I should just stop going to bed early.

I don't sleep longer. I just wake up more frequently. Though it is...interesting, I guess would be the one way: when I fall back to sleep after waking up in the middle of the night, I tend to have more vivid dreams, and to have the good fortune of remembering them better.

Hence, the story:

Last night I dreamed that I was filming a movie with Ryan Gosling. Not only was I starring opposite him, I also wrote the script! Oh, joyful day.

Why Ryan Gosling? I say:

              Ryan Gosling

He's a solid actor, he's musically inclined, and he's more than easy on the eyes. So, boom, Ryan Gosling.

We were working out a scene, spouting off dialog that I had written. Some quick-fire banter that just sparkled with wit and emotion. You know how I do. 

The director yelled cut, and I woke up.

I stared up into the dark, and do you want to know what I was most excited about? What my first thought was? 

Writing crackling dialog > Acting in a fake movie in a dream starring Ryan Gosling.

Let's be honest. If I ever had the chance to act in a real movie starring the real Ryan Gosling, I'd probably just explode.

Well - THAT sounds like a good dream! My best dreams are ones that inspire stories. I had one of those while I was reading Mockingjay. Couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks.
