Once again we are nearing another end of a month and it is time to step aside from my painting to tell you of the next story. I have been hem-hawing about starting the next months story because it is more personal than others and contains actual elements of dreams I have had. Also, every time I have felt I put this story to bed, a reread reveals something that needs fixed. Hopefully with the help of my patrons, I can make this a story worthy of them.
To begin with, this will only be the first chapter of a series of connected short stories collectively titled “Dragon Dreams”. Each short story has a subtitle, the first one being “Paths of the Wise One”. The later tales are “Currents of the World” and “Embers in the Sky”. Each title of the tale is tied into scenes from or act as metaphors for the story they contain but all deal with multiple levels of dreams. The stories are very complex since you pass through multiple realities.
The first reality is our world (no defined time frame) followed closely by dreams in our world, which lead to a transfer point between our reality and the “Dragon Dreams”. The “Dragon Dreams” are where the real fun begins because each is completely different from the last. Our protagonist Jason Connors finds himself drawn into dreams so realistic that he loses himself there. However, something or someone is directing those dreams and they always appear as a giant blue dragon, attacking the naive Jason in richly diverse settings. Jason’s dreams occur on so many levels that he finds it hard to separate one from the other. What does the terrifying entity want? Why did it chose him as prey? Learn these and many other details in the serialized version of “Dragon Dreams” starting with chapter 1 in “Paths of the Wise One”.
P.S. There will be 10 chapters total.
