F4TFriday #114 - Nightmares

#F4TFriday #114 ~ Nightmares
Floss's prompt for #113 certainly inspired lots of you into posting. We have both so enjoyed reading all your words about why you blog. 

Many bloggers have done a great job of writing a post that covers more than one of the weekly memes – in fact I did that myself. It is something to consider each week if you link to memes on a regular basis, particularly now the F4tFriday questions are merely guidance, write whatever you want to about the prompt topic. We are always happy for you to link up an older post and update it with the F4t badge, or write a fiction piece.

#113 Spotlight Post

This week there is a spotlight roundup post which focuses on three of last week entries - You can check out the post here. The roundup included - Malflic, Asrai and Elliott Henry.

Prompt #114 Nightmares (&/or Dreams)


Many thanks to Molly for letting us use her amazing photo for the header image to this weeks prompt.

The topic NIGHTMARES has been suggested by Sweetgirl. You can find her on her blog creating great content each week.

Origins ~ The word "nightmare" is derived from the Old English "mare", a mythological demon or
goblin who torments others with frightening dreams. Subsequently, the prefix "night-" was added to stress the dream aspect.

Meaning ~ Nowadays it means either a frightening/unpleasant dream OR experience.

Please write whatever you want to on the topic. Use nightmares/day-mares or indeed dreams as your food for thought muse. Here are a few things to think about to get your juices flowing.

  • What causes you to have a bad dream? 
  • Have you ever suffered from sleep paralysis? 
  • Do you experience recurring dreams? 
  • Tell us about a living nightmare?

To show your support for others please remember to try and read and comment on a few of the entries.

Some people are prone to experience lucid dreams – when you are aware you are dreaming and have control of some of your actions within the dream. I asked Floss what she knows about this.

I know a lot about lucid dreams from what I’ve read online and I know a whole lot more from what happens when I go to bed. I am not blessed with the ability to have lucid dreams, I am however cursed with lucid nightmares. If you’d like to know more about my dreams you should read Between the Worlds. Presented as fiction, but in many ways, it is very real to me.

  1. Thank you for putting this up as a topic. Three are really interesting reads, though I am going to sit this one out. Mine are too real to talk about, at least for now.

    1. No worries Francesca - I do hope to hear your thoughts on another topic soon ;-) We have both been enjoying your posts immensely x
