It is unbelievable for you, but for me, I trust my dream.
My dream is usually telling me what will going to happen to me.
I ever mentioned about pirate website took my story to republish.
Before it happened, I had had a dream.
In the dream, I held a cell phone in my hand. The phone was turned off. Then I switched it on.
When it was on, I noticed phone screen had something strange. I watched it closely then I saw many cats inside the screen - those cats were in cartoon form. I was surprised and frightened. Immediately, I fell the phone off my hand. The device dropped on land and broke its screen, then the cats jumped out of the screen phone.
When I woke up, I thought about the meaning of this dream.
In general, when I dream about cat, it means someone close to me is having not good idea towards me - it can be they lie me something or they want to cheat my money.
But I felt the cats in dream were not pointing to my close-people because in the dream, I was told I did not have relation with those cats.
I tried to make consumption:
- there were many cats mean there were many scammers.
- I did not know cats mean scammers should not be people I have contacted.
- cats in screen phone mean scammer should be meet me through phone.
- I broke phone and those cats came out mean I found out about them.
After this dream, about one week later, I saw the result.
My consumption was quite correct.
At that time, my fictions that I published on fiction platforms were republished on pirate website. When I found out, I was so angry and upset, then I decided to pause writing. I made announcement to tell my readers about the problem and my decision.
After, there were comments.
When I looked at the comments, I sensed immediately that they were from pirate website because there were several suspicious points:
1. comments posted on same hour, same day.
2. comments had same concept, 'update'.
3. even name of people who made comments were not one, but the names looked similar.
4. comments were mentioned on fictions that was not finished and I had made announcement to pause writing.
Base on these, I was sure that they were not my real fans; they pretended to be my fan to lure me to finish my fiction - then they could complete story, that they stole from me, on their site.
I thought this problem ended. But it still happens...
On one of fiction platforms, that I am a member, recently gains many 'adding to collection'.
If it were in before, I would be happy and I would write more stories, but after the matter, I am calmed down and considerate; I don't trust easily.
There are more than twenty in a day clicking add my fiction to their reading collection. To make sure, I click each account.
Result - most of the clickers are new sign up. No any work on their wall, and there is no reading collection; I don't find collection that they clicked add my story.
In conclusion, I meet fake fan again. The smart people lie to me. They click adding my fiction to reading collection hoping I will be fall into their trick - to believe I have many fans then I would continue write/publish story.
Um, these smart guys...
I ever think about the dream. Like I said, it should be ended, why it continues till today.
After reminding, I find the answer.
In the end of the dream, when cats came out from broken screen, there were few cats still living in the screen. So, it means there are people from pirate website coming to me. Because I did not notice it, that's why I assume wrongly that the smart guys stop follow me.
I understand now. There are many smart guys. They follow me. They fishing not only one platforms but all platforms that I have signed up.
Well, I think I make them hopeless.
Even though there are many supporters and they are real fans, still I will not complete my unfinished novel and I don't publish fiction regularly; I will publish once in a very long while when I have free time and feeling to write.
Hmm, let it be.
I cannot escape from them, thought, because I am writing online. Unless I stop writing, then my fiction will not be stolen.
