From Frankenstein to Misery, to Jane Eyre, these books by famous authors were inspired by dreams… or nightmares.
If you learn how to memorize your dreams, you can make them one of the most important ways of harnessing creativity.
Famous creative people – writers among them – often use dreams in their work. Dreams connect information, ideas, and memories. They can create unexpected context, paint an exciting picture, or add a small element that can change the situation upside down.
Sleep Advisor has published an infographic that puts together eleven books by famous authors. They have one thing in common – they began as dreams.
The visual includes Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Misery by Stephen King, Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight, or Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. For each title, you will find a short description of how the idea of a book was connected to the author’s dream.
As many of the most easily remembered dreams are bizarre, fantastical, or otherwise nightmarish, it makes sense that they often result in well-known horror novels, like much of Stephen King’s work.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
