Yesterday I was looking through one of my old idea notebooks for a concept for a new writing project. Often I'll write down recent dreams in these notebooks as well. As I sat in my car before class yesterday, I stumbled across this:
"Dream that I'm driving a large bus (double-decker?) in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco. I'm running down hippies because I can't see right in front of the bus. I may also be dating Tiffany Amber-Theissen of 'Saved by the Bell,' but I can't be certain."
I'm pretty sure this is how Victor Hugo came up with "Les Miserables."
