I dream of Geek Girl’s Guide

So last night, I dreamed that The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading was out in the stores. The cover was blue. Will the cover really be blue? Time will tell.

Anyway, I was paging through a copy and discovered that some of the words in the story were not written by me and Darcy. Paragraphs and scenes slipped in at some point between the two of us turning the manuscript in and it being printed.

So, I was talking to Darcy (in that dream-like way, sometimes she was right next to me, sometimes on the phone, and sometimes we simply had that Borg connection) to see what she spotted that was different.

And that was about it. We weren’t really upset, more intrigued by these strange passages in our book.

Now, in the morning, all I can think is: Me? Anxious?

Not at all.

Much.

  1. I can see that you’re calm, cool and unconcerned.

    Blue, huh?

    🙂

  2. Those sneaky editors! You have to watch them. Every. Minute.

    Blue? Works for me…

    Charity,

    For what it’s worth, this is what http://www.dreammoods.com says about the color blue:

    “Blue represents truth, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness. The presence of this color in your dream, may symbolize your spiritual guide and your optimism of the future. You have clarity of mind.

    Depending on the context of your dream, the color blue may also be a metaphor of “being blue” and feeling sad.”

    That first paragraph sounds pretty good to me. Your dream doesn’t seem sad, just opening up to a whole new world of possibilities.

    BTW, that website is full of pop-up adds, so be careful if you check it out.

    I like books with blue covers. Don’t know if that’s what marketing would say, but if picking up a book puts me in my happy place, then picking up a book with a blue cover puts me in my calm, happy place. I like that place.

    Only time will tell….
