My skill would involve dreams and harnessing my unconscious to do work (without missing out on any rest or anything).
Problem that needs a solution? Story that needs plot help? Train the ol’ brain to work out good, viable solutions at least as well as my conscious brain– And (ideally) even better. This is a fantasy exercise, right?
Magic Bullet. The answer came to me in a dream. Whatever. A little sleep, and I could wake with a solid plan laid out for wakey-time Dave.
Kind of deus ex machina, I suppose. But how ’bout we let Uncle Morpheus carry some of the load? I mean, we’re talking a Greek God here, magic powahs, hello?
That way, I can get right to sleep and never “miss out” on anything.
Right now, I’ll settle for the “sleep” part. Cuz we iz sure sleepy, yo.
If you could choose to be a master (or mistress) of any skill in the world, which skill would you pick?
