first, I must warn that I changed the age of my character. Originally, I set him at eight years of age. I have set him back to seven for the first two chapters.
Much of the story being written at the beginning of this is true. It is based off events in my childhood. The dreams and the ‘vision’ I mention did actually take place. This first episode is based off years 7-11 7-9 took place on the farm. years 10 and 11 were the first years lived in Sidney. It was the first time I realized that dreams meant something. Something more than most would admit.
Our household never had a television in it. I could never watch horror movies, so my dreams have no basis in anything I have ever watched. I did read a lot as a child, but nothing so terrifying as what I had dreamed.
I have never told any of the first few dreams. Or of the dreams I had as a teen. I have, however, spoken to a few about the dreams I had in my early adult life…which will also be detailed in this portion of the Soul Shard series. My suspicions about the later dreams have been averred, so I know that I am right about the earlier dreams as well.
Yes, I have become very adept at interpreting my own dreams. With such vivid imagery and audible dialogue, Or intense action, they are not hard for me to read. At the same time, I do not want to make too many uncomfortable. It isn’t my intent.
The overall Soul Shard series is meant to tie together the loose ends of the other cycles…Alpha Triad and Deltalink International. It is meant to bring a close to The Dimensional Wars in a way that redefines the universe and time/space itself as a concept.
