Antonyms of Reality

So, I thought just for fun I would clue you in to how I came up with the name of this blog. For a while now I've been trying to think of some creative name, because who wants to read a blog with a boring name, right?

Well, I set out thinking about it again last night, and I thought of my favorite line from one of my favorite songs, The Real World by Owl City. In the song he declares "Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there." Ever since I heard that line I have wholeheartedly agreed. I have always loved disappearing into the worlds that I have created in my books, and it seems that more and more I've been turning to them to escape reality.

So, with this in mind I was thinking "what is the opposite of reality?" I then began to think of what I could search online for ideas, and the result was "antonyms of reality." As I typed it into the search box it just clicked in my brain: I didn't need to search for anything! I had it! And so, the title was born.

So there you go, now you  know where the title came from. I hope you'll keep reading along as I get this thing up and going!
