IN DEFENSE OF DAYDREAMING

Why does daydreaming get such a bad rap?

You’re daydreaming, developing a simple method for time travel and solving all the mysteries of the world. Then all of a sudden, people start calling you names like “space cadet” and “slacker,” and saying daydreaming is a total waste of time.

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora
I don’t understand why these people think that, so I’m writing this post today in defense of daydreaming. It’s NOT a waste of time. I think it’s a brilliant use of time.

“Everything starts as somebody’s daydream.”
Larry Niven
When you’re daydreaming, your brain stops focusing on what you’re doing. Your mind wanders. It gives your brain a chance to throw ideas at you to see what sticks. Maybe it’s ideas for resolving a problem you’re having in life… or ideas for an awesome story.

“A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten. Some of us are gourmets, some gourmands, and a good many take their images precooked out of a can and swallow them down whole, absent-mindedly and with little relish.”
W.H. Auden
Most of my best ideas have come from daydreaming, but it isn’t just for people seeking inspiration. It’s for everyone!

“You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.”
Neil Gaiman
So my advice is to ignore that “space cadet” and “slacker” name-calling and get to daydreaming!

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom

VOICEOVER SCRIPT TIP: DATES

How do you read the date 01/20/2018 aloud?

Did you read it as one, twenty, twenty-eighteen

OR…

Did you read it as January 20th, twenty-eighteen?

How about January 20th, two-thousand and eighteen?

Zero one, two zero, two zero one eight?

Or one, twenty, two-thousand eighteen?

To get the date read exactly how you want it in your voice over recording, write how you’d like it said in your script. That way you’ll never have to worry about needing a re-record simply because your voice over actor didn’t say the date the way you prefer.

More script tips later!

I have a new audiobook of a fairy tale that really is a fairy tale up on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes: Danwe of the Vase, written by the talented Dale Stubbart.

Danwe lived in a vase. It was not a regularly shaped vase. Danwe’s vase had a tall cylindrical section. That is to say it was taller than it was wide. This section of the vase was similar in shape to a can of spam, but much nicer looking.

When I say Danwe lived in a vase, I mean he lived in a vase. That is to say, he never left. He had lived here all his life, all by himself.

When Danwe needed something from the outside, he would have it delivered. This was almost the only contact that Danwe had with the other little people who lived in this house.

So what happens when Danwe finally leaves his vase and starts exploring? What will his world be like?
