What is your fantasy, your dream? What make you smile from ear to ear every time you see? Is it that new car? You know that dream car you've been fantasizing about. The one that makes you smile every time you see one drive. When something goes wrong you pull up that picture you have of it to calm yourself down. You can just smell that new car smell in it. The sleek design, the seats, dash, even the steering wheel looks good on it.
Is your dream a new baby? Maybe your time biological clock is ticking. Whenever you walk passed the baby section at the store you have to stop and look at clothes just to see what it feels like. When you visit friends you want to hold their baby and look at the little fingers and toes, and pudgy cheeks.
Do you dream of freedom… a vacation in one of the most exotic places on earth, with palm trees swaying in the breeze, beaches, and tropical drinks? Maybe your idea of vacation is not in the tropics, but rather in the big city - Dining in elegant restaurants, dressed in the finest clothes. Men in their Brioni or Kiton suites, or maybe a less expensive but more familiar Giorgio Armani or Ralph Lauren will call your attention. If you’re a woman you may enjoy wearing a Gucci outfit, or possibly Prada. Maybe you would like to enjoy one of the hottest fashions from Fendi to demonstrate your glamour and glitz?
If you're among the very young your idea of a vacation includes night clubs, dumb men with muscle that know no bounds, and lots of alcohol. And let's face it that will bring us to where we wake up in a strange place, or with a strange person in our bed. Maybe what you enjoy is the thrill of the hunt. It may be that you enjoy knowing you can capture anyone of the opposite sex at any given time. And like any good hunter, you like to have your trophies.
Maybe your dream is a home - With a husband or wife - Having the life with a white picket fence and that good job. You know the dream, the one where you know all the neighbors, and everyone says hello as you're getting into your car in the morning. But, maybe I'm getting ahead of myself here. Your dream could be finding that special person to make that home with.
Do you write about it? Do you write about the struggle of achieving those dreams, of having your wildest fantasies come true? Who is the evil that keeps you from accomplishing your dreams? You need to dream bigger, with larger than life enemies that live only to keep you from your dreams, and to destroy your fantasies. Then dream of their defeat and your victory.

After you dream, write. Write about the beginning of that fantasy. Write about the emotions of seeing it taken away. Write about the pain of losing your hopes and dreams. Write about the spark that lit up and caused you not to give in to defeat. Write about the struggle to get your dream back. Write about almost dying in the process. But, most of all write about the joy of victory, and the tears of joy. Write about the laughter, and the peace of knowing you've won. Write…
Write your comments and tell me a little about it. Tell me a little, just a little, of your dreams and fantasies. Just a little, because a dream or a fantasy take an entire book.
But remember… Always stay in your write mind.
