help with story idea.

:iconkimonocrazy:
I have an idea for a story. The idea is that there is this dream device that can see into people's dreams. Soon dreams start becoming reality. One gets himself involved with a murder from someone else's dream. That all I've got of idea. Please let me know what you think of it and give suggestions on how to expand it further. Thank you.

I had an idea similar to this when I was a kid. I scrapped it but I might go back to it one day.

I hope you've studied up on Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, their stuff will help you a lot if you are writing about dreams, they did for me.

Oh, well, I've actually gotten some more ideas and I may leave the dream part out, but if I keep the dream part in could you recommend me one of their books?

I'd start with Carl Jung's Man and His Symbols. I also like to keep a list of universal dream symbols handy.

Are these books with actual stories or are they more books that explain or talk about a subject?
