Daydreaming is one of my most critical source of power. I fantasize a lot while I am writing my novels, poetry, dreams, and short stories (Asad and Anya, Galvan and Inaya); trying to fall asleep; dancing to a cute tune; enjoying nature like watching bugs or listening to the forest sounds; acting out a script in front of the mirror; watching a martial arts movie; or, listening to a song. Sometimes, I tell myself all sorts of romantic short stories before I finally fall asleep like a child─I wonder if my daydreaming abilities have something to do with the fact that I was breastfed for two years. I am still a daydreamer although I am in my thirties; and, I feel that the fact that lucid dreams are sometimes triggered by daydreams encourages me to create fantasies. I recommend that all writers and poets learn how to daydream because doing so improves empathy and writing abilities. Oh! I still feel so startled when I feel the rush of hormones that are triggered during my daydreams─its like I have fallen in love with someone very magnetic. Crazy!
