When I was one of those angsty teens with posters on the walls of my room, one of them was actually a present from my dad. It was a photo of of a sleeping kitten that looked to be smiling (even 50 years ago, LOL cats were a thing!) and the caption said, “Set aside some dreaming time.” Dad always encouraged me to do three things:
2) Use my imagination
3) Believe I could be whoever I wanted to be
Then the Universe dropped this into my inbox…
Have you noticed, Silver, how all dreams come with built-in challenges, and all challenges come with built-in dreams?

That’s why we call both of them “gifts,” Silver; it also saves massive amounts of paper.
My dad, and his teachings, truly were gifts and I miss him every day, though he’s been gone 25 years now. Whenever I get discouraged, when the writing gets hard, and I forget to imagine and forget to dream, I need to remember this message. Dreams and challenges go hand-in-hand. So, tally-ho, readers! I’ve figured out the glitch, partially due to this revelation. So both the dream and the challenge are new words and finishing MOONSTRUCK: BETRAYAL. What dreams and challenges do you have?
