Feature and Follow #6 Get your Hop On




Welcome to our 6th Feature and Follow.  Yeah I know we are at 6, isn’t that awesome.  So as today is the start of Easter Weekend and there are people who celebrate that, I would like to add to this hop a little Easter Bunny to brighten everyone’s day.



What did you think it wouldn’t have fangs?  We are FANG Freakintastic afterall.

week's question

Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? What was it?


Not really, I have dreams, I have prophetic dreams, I have nightmares, I have some prophetic nightmares.  All in all I am a mess honestly.  I get Deja Vu, and it isn’t situations, it is conversations that are repeated outside of dream state.  Yeah I know… Actually because I dream on a nightly basis I have started to turn my dreams into books, well manuscripts.

I am up to three WIPs because of this and one is Awesomesauce about Ripley’s Believe it or Not.  I used to just write them down but I figured what does that do, and I am apparently much more creative than I used to be so now I am expending that energy into writing.  7000 words in three days isn’t bad and then I had to stop because well life.

Have you ever had a dream that was reoccurring or came true?

    7000 words in 3 days – I’m not a writer, but that sounds like one heck of a word count. Our dreams are truly mini-novels our brain puts together so writing them down would prove a great motivation for writing. I have to admit, I do envy writers – I don’t have that talent and I am in awe of anyone who does. My son is the writer in our family, self published, and I know the agony he goes through, I could not do it.

      You would be surprised with your writing skills. I was a HORRIBLE writer, I mean like really bad, barely getting A’s in english and that was because my mom is an amazing editor and she really helped both my dad finish college and me finish high school. Fast Forward to Undergraduate and I was still really bad, but because of my degrees and the classes that I had to take I had to write, I had to do two senior thesis’s and they were long. I still was not that good of a writer and I got Cs to prove it. But I am hard headed and so I decided that I was going to get my master’s in a very writing heavy subject, History. Well I excelled, I don’t know why, but I got a lot better, and then I wrote my first and to date only non-fiction and I got better. Trust me after you publish a non-fiction and have it all edited and proofread and footnoted, fiction is a breeze, there are differences of course, but for the most part with a fiction you can just word vomit. You can’t do that with a Non-fiction, although some historians try. Now looking back at my old papers and reports *which I keep all of them* I am like OMG that was terrible and I could fix this and this and this. The subject was great, but the execution was seriously lacking.

  2. It’s great that you can make your dreams into books. I’ve often had really cool dreams that I think would make a great book, but when I wake up I can never remember it. At all. All I get is the impression that it was awesome.

      Most of my dreams are like that as well, some really stick with me though so those I tend to write down. If my husband is home I will run the whole thing by him because he has a memory like a goat, they have good memories right? 🙂 if not then I will make sure that I keep telling myself it so when I get to the computer I can throw down something.

  3. I’d love to read the books you’re writing about your dreams!! And I’d like to hear more about your prophetic dreams! Old follower 🙂

    Here’s my F&F!

    • Andretta says:

      Tracy, I once had a dream that my daughter was going to be hit in the face with a softball. I didn’t really think anything of it because she didn’t play softball and we didn’t even have one in the house, which honestly is odd since I played for a long time. Well 6 months later she decided that she DID want to play softball so we bought all the gear like good first time softball parents and I was practicing with her. My husband was in Afghanistan so I tried to teach her everything I knew. Well the FIRST ball that I threw at her hit her in the face, square on the nose, no blood thankfully, but she did have a HUGE bruise on the first day of practice. Thankfully she is a lot better now and I try not to throw at her face.

      The book I am writing now is about a dream I had about Ripley’s Believe it or Not. I am at 7K so maybe I will look you up for a beta reader :).

  4. Hopping through 🙂 I can’t say I’ve had any recurring dreams – which I guess is nice, as most people seem to be talking about recurring nightmares today, which sounds awful 🙁

    I often have that happen to me too. I’m talking to someone and a certain word or phrase is said and I’m like ‘wait didn’t this conversation already happen’.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF

    Worth Reading It?

    • Andretta says:

      Anytime, yeah and then do you start to run through your memory trying to figure out where it came from and where the conversation is going to go. I swear that sometimes people will just look at me because I am standing there thinking.

  6. That is so cool you are turning your dreams into books! I wish I could remember my good dreams! All I can remember are my nightmares!

    New follower! (: Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    • Andretta says:

      Yeah I used to be like that, but lately I have been trying to get better about not having nightmares. When I do I wake up screaming and crying and IF my husband is home then I feel better, if not then I just lay there and think. He works nights so sometimes he is home, sometimes he isn’t.

  7. That’s great that you’re using your dreams for inspiration for your manuscripts! 7000 word count in 3 days is really good. Keep at it!!

    • Oops, I meant to say “old” follower. 🙂

      Afternoon Shannon, I hope that all is well. Yeah I know, but life has stomped on my writing dreams and so I haven’t written in over a week. I tried to write during Nowrmamo or whatever it is called, I got 4000 in two days and then life stomped and I think I am still only at 5000 LOL. I think that I should go into business writing short things, I am really good at like 10K and then I lose track and don’t know where it is going to go.
