Thread: Novel openings

    Dreamt and dreamed are used in the same way and in different ways, quite confusing, but dreamed is much more commonly used. Dreamt is pronounced, and sometimes spelled 'drempt', I would go with 'dreamed' if I were you, it won't stop people in the way dreamt stopped me.

    Thanks, Olly. I've struggled with that myself. I know dreamt is technically correct, but if I were to write it anew I would choose dreamed. My third-person narrator was feeling the need to wax lyrical that day and I should have reined him in.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.
