Nightmare

Having a nightmare: Bad.

Having a nightmare partly based on a movie that scared the crap out of you as a kid: Very Bad.

Having a nightmare so bad that you cannot go back to sleep and are afraid to in any case: Very Very Bad.

Coming up with the most awesome Freaky Friday Fiction while in the shower based on this nightmare: Priceless.

I've been having trouble sleeping lately. This is the first time in a while, though, that I've had a really sucky and not cool nightmare. However, that has not stopped my brain from turning it into a real kick ass Freaky Friday Fiction for this week.

Ah, nightmares in the creative mind. Sometimes they can be worth the horror. Both Mary Shelley and Robert Lewis Stevenson wrote novels based upon nightmares that they had :)

"Poltergeist" the original one got to me too as a wee lad. That and "John Carpenter's: The Thing" were shown as a double bill at a friends overnight birthday party. No one slept that night!
