I Had A Dream

If you're anything like me, your heart will sink whenever you hear the words, "I had this weird dream, right?" By their very nature, dreams are weird since they don't follow the same narrative logic as conscious thought. The apparently illogical nature of the dream is the bedrock of Surrealism - the movement would not work without it.

Still, dreams can sometimes prove to be strangely inspirational - and not in the "I have a dream" sort of way. I've been suffering with a most vexatious head cold over the past few days and as a result, I've been having remarkably vivid dreams - and I want to offer the most recent one as a story prompt! If you manage it, leave a link below so I can see what you come up with.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a story about a pirate captain, a fictional Londe bus route, and a kidnapped bear cub.

Haha! A pirate captain, a London bus route, and a kidnapped bear cub... Wow, man... that must've been one helluva dream!

I dream vividly all the time! I get lots and lots of good story ideas from them.

Somehow, I managed! Off the Cub, since it was off the cuff…
