Hello everyone! My name is Michael Hammond and I am the creator and writer behind this page. This is a bit of a rundown of the next few posts I plan on making about my collection of short stories. They are recreations of dreams I had after drinking NyQuil while I was sick, as well as the inspiration to write down later vivid dreams that I thought would be interesting. They aren’t exact, I did what I could with writing down the big portions of it to remember it. To help the story hold together and flow better, some of the smaller details aren’t necessarily straight from memory, but it works. For the past three years I have been writing them down for fun, but I thought I would share them with you all. I remember many of my dreams so the content won’t be very difficult to put out. Thank you all!
As a student at Oregon State, we are usually required to take the basic classes before we really start on what we are most interested in. That being the case, one of those classes happen to be writing. There was a point in time where I didn’t write well, it was sloppy and overrun with errors regarding what tense I was speaking in. Although I have gotten better with those issues I’ve decided to keep everything in the original writing to keep the authenticity of it. I’ll likely go back to fix it later, but I’m also a tad lazy and would rather not right now.
Back to it, this all started as an assignment in my writing class. While we had other projects to focus on, they also required we write in a program called “Write 365.” I’m thankful for that now because it allowed me to bring these stories to all of you.
One night my freshman year I was extremely sick, so much so I didn’t go to my classes all day. Might not seem like much, but with how rarely I get sick now I wanted to be done with it as soon as possible. Taking NyQuil seemed like the best solution! So I did… maybe a bit too much. With an already exceptional imagination it’s not hard to see how this could have happened, but I had crazy dreams. I chose to write them down as my Write 365 assignments. The idea just popped into my head, the perfect name, just clever enough to fit, with inspiration from the Grimm Fairy Tales. That is how “Tales of a NyQuil Dreamer” came to be. Here we go!
