Aggie: the Dream

February 5, 2005

The story "Aggie" came to me in a dream. . . .

I'd heard of this sort of thing happening, but it had never happened to me. I awoke with the plot, pretty much in its entirety, rattling around in my head. Even the author's pseudonym was there.

Does that mean I stole the story? Cribbed it from the collective unconscious that Jung wrote about. Hey, you decide whether I'm a dream-plagiarist.
