A hard-luck novelist mired in the throes of writer's block finds himself inspired to write about a woman he ends up unintentionally willing into existence.

ABSTRACT
Calvin Weir-Fields, a frustrated young writer unable to get a feeling for any ideas for a followup to the success of his first novel, receives an assignment from his therapist to write a page about someone who enjoys his dog. The following night, Calvin has a dream about an attractive young woman who does just that; suddenly inspired to write, he becomes more and more engrossed in his female character's existence until a living, breathing woman matching his exact specifications -- named Ruby Sparks -- seemingly materializes out of thin air one fateful morning.
