Pre-waking state

I noticed that this morning and last, before my alarm went off, I was dreaming in language, not pictures. Writing in my sleep. I know it is writing because I get through a passage and then re-dream it to revise it.

I was working on word choice, tone and general readability for these pieces which I cannot remember after I awoke. The topics escaped me.

I wonder if this phenomenon comes from finally getting into writing something daily? Paying attention to writing. Perhaps it will propel me into writing longer than a blog post.

The other thing I find interesting about this is that I am a visual artist and usually my dreams are vivid, movie-like scenes or dramas. This author voice-over mode is new.

I wonder, do others dream in words, dream they are writing?
