Dreams to Fiction

Do you ever have dreams that you've turned into fiction? There have been nights I've had dreams, thought, wow, that would make a good book or written part of it down, only to wake up the next morning and say to myself, WTF was I thinking?

Last night was different. I pulled a Stephenie Meyer. Last night I slept like shit. Had nightmares all night that had me screaming myself awake. Dreams so real I could feel them.

But then I had another dream. A very vivid dream based on racial tension, taboo relationships, and injustice.

It was so good, I even wrote down the dream in my dream?!?! Seriously. When I woke up I was like, damn! I didn't really write that down. And I quickly grabbed a pen and notebook because the idea was already fleeting.

I think I got it all down. This idea is so good, I'm considering putting everything else aside to start it.

You ever have fictional revelations like that? When do you usually get them?
