Dreams from Not Writing

For the past couple of weeks, G and I have both been having what feels like nonstop dreams at night. We both wake up every morning still tired, our brains filled with images from our dreams or nightmares. They are vivid and real and never ending.

G has a theory that we dream as a couple because of the strength of the ideas in my head. As if I have such a strong need to write that if I don't start getting a story/novel written, we will continue to dream uncontrollably from the energy stored inside of me. I have to admit, it's certainly curious that we seem to only dream on the same nights and we both wakeup feeling the same way about dreams. There's never a day where G dreams a lot and sleeps like shit and I wake up refreshed and dreamless.

Is it possible that some kind of energy exists between us as we sleep? Is it possible that my vivid dreams cause him to dream as well? Or is it coincidence? When I'm actively writing something new again, will the dreams go away? Right now I am finishing revisions on my Silhouette Desire, but thoughts of my Young Adult novel, Pandemic, are going through my head all day long. However, I haven't had a chance to really write any part of Pandemic down because I'm working on old material, trying to get it ready to send out. Is it possible that my imagination is so full of energy and ideas right now that I am causing us to have crazy dreams simply because I'm not emptying my ideas into a novel? Something to think about.
