    Default turn your ideas into reality

    We want to turn our ideas into reality.
    We want to turn our ideas into a reality.

    From a native's point of view, will you use "a" in this context in your writing or conversation?


    Thanks!

    You will hear it with the indefinite article but I would use it without. Note that you needed a space between "a" and "reality", as I have amended it to above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
