Moving Thoughts Friday--Novel Choice

Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.
It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.

End each day reading a novel that is sure to give you freaky dreams
or

Start each day reading a novel with yawn-inspiring prose & lacking big time in the plot department?

  1. Lol! I can't do freaky dreams or boring books, so I'd take the freakish book at the beginning of the day and put it down well before bedtime!

  2. LOL, This is too funny because just last night I finished Melanie Dickerson's book, The Healer's Apprentice, in which the girl gets possessed by demons that haunt her while she's sleeping. Yep. Sarah = smart woman. :)

  3. Freaky dreams all the way! And Melanie's book sounds awesome! :)

  4. I think I'm with Anne on this one. That would be a very tough dilemma for me. :)

  5. This is awesome! Freaky dreams. At least then I might wake up with some story fodder. And I could use the frightening emotions to write them more realistically is my novels!

  6. Neither! I refuse to continue reading a book I find boring, and I no longer allow freaky books anywhere near me before bed! I need my beauty sleep. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Hehehe, fun question! But a question: How much do I have to read? If it's only a page or two, I can handle the boring morning option. :) But if I have to stick with it for more than a few chapters, I'll take the freaky one, assuming it's something I won't be able to put down! :)

  8. Sheesh! What a question!
    I'd choose the yawner.
    I have enough sleep issues as it is. :)

  9. End of night, definitely. :-) I have no sleep issues... except small children who repeatedly wake me up all night long. lol

  11. I don't think I could get through the yawner book, and so if those are the only choices I have, I'd choose the freaky dreams book. I have to have SOMETHING to read!

  12. I hate nightmares and the yawner would help put me to sleep. So win-win.

  13. That's not even a choice for me. Definitely freaky dreams.

  14. Those are my options?!?! I'd have to go with the yawner - being a mother of two year old twins I value my sleep too much to give it up to nightmares! :)

  15. I'd have to go with the yawner. That way I'd feel SO much better about my own manuscripts, flaws and all.

  16. End the day with freaky dreams. I have them anyway, so might as well get to read a rollicking good book in the process. :D

  17. Tough, tough question and I almost thought about skipping it. But you asked, so I'll answer: I'll pick the freaky dreams (and the good book) over the boring one!

    ReplyDelete
  18. No freaky dreams for me, thanksomuch. My life is odd enough. And I can't stand boring prose, so huh...I'd take the boredom over being freaked out. Cuz you didn't say how long we'd have to read the yawner. ;)

  19. Neither, I don't read things I find boring and I don't care for freaky. Last night, I finished reading "The Help". A friend had read it and loved it. We talked about it when I called her this evening. It is a very good book. First time author, Kathryn Stockett.
