In an interview with Connie Martinson Pat Conroy (author of The Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, South of Broad, and many other spellbinding novels) said that not only does he remember his dreams but also he weaves his dreams into his stories.

I was pleased to hear that because I too use dreams to show character growth in my novels.  Interpreting dreams and understanding personal dream-symbols enriches my life and my writing.  Thank you, talented Angie Choi author of My Dreams: A Simple Guide to Dream Interpretation , for teaching me a most valuable skill.
