NOT ACTUALLY A PARTY

DREAM NOTES

 

I wrote Deirdreís confused waking.  Of course she literally didnít know what hit her.

I dreamed the conversation about magentine effect with no visuals, just the conversation, in reversal of my usual pattern of remembering the sensory data, but not the words.  When I woke I only remembered how it began, and who the speakers were, and a vague sense of the gist, but as I wrote I remembered it, line by line, much surprised at the result.  I originally wrote it in script-style, minus the classroom or the teacher-parts at beginning and end.  But I do recall dreaming of the lab and its back room separately, just the setting.  In any case I have since elaborated on the dialogue.
