One ND here for September 13.

Also, does anyone know a good way to upload an image somewhere on the internet in order to put it in a post? I did a quick sketch for one of my dreams, but I don't know a way to put an image online somewhere where it has its own url...


Have you tried www.imgur.com? I use that for most hosting.

I'm not claiming points for recall, since this is the ND challenge and mine are LDs. Four last night, for the record. Not my best.

I did a bonus task while lucid: see a car.

I'll type up my completed tasks from last week later today. That dream is rather more complex to reconstruct from the coded notes.

EDIT: I suppose there was a chain and an RC in there, too. I forgot that's part of the challenge.

Ooh, I know the feeling! All of my car dreams have some weird issue where I'm trying to drive from the back seat. Possibly why I'm so spooked out to ever actually drive. But I hope you are able to get a good car dream!

Ah, I've never been in either challenge before and I obviously missed this in the rules post sadblauw I didn't know organizing things into one post was considered "dumping" or that it gave you an unfair advantage.

If I'd known I would've found time one way or another! Oh, well. Silly me, I should have realized from the way everyone else was posting.

EDIT: I can't find the details in the rules post. Does this mean I can't get the 30 points for completing each task on time even though I did the task on Monday? I completed: ride a bike (pennyfarthing), have a race. I'll try hard to write it up tomorrow.

"Point-dumping" is when someone claims points for a weeks' worth of dreaming without giving prior notice. It was a tactic used in many previous LCs by participants who were trying to lull other players into a false sense of security; (because they thought they only needed 'x' amount of points to win). It has since been considered bad sportsmanship and excluded in recent Challenges.

Moogle and I don't mean to seem harsh, but to keep things fair for everyone, we won't be able to count those previous tasks. As said, next time we recommend dropping by and letting us know you have achieved specific tasks and will be writing them up at 'x' time.

But remember, the NDC still has four weeks remaining and you are welcome to retry the tasks and claim points. Bonus tasks aren't penalised for not being done in the week they were introduced, so everyone is given the same opportunity to achieve them. ^^

Congrats on the LDs. Feel free to type them up and claim points for them. We are focused on recall of any kind here, so any dream typed-up is eligible for points, regardless of whether it is an ND or LD. wink

Ok, thanks for clarifying. I guess it didn't cross my mind, since I thought everyone just did their best, regardless of how much other people were claiming Maybe put it in the actual rules for future challenges? It's not really something you'd guess if you haven't followed them before, but it's easy to avoid if you've only been warned! I hope I can still get the points for doing all weekly tasks on time (even though I can't get the actual points for the first), since you can't really catch up on that one nuu

I think I won't claim for recalled dreams since I get an awful lot anyway, and I wouldn't really want to rack up points just through that. Presumably the spirit of the challenge is to improve the skills you haven't already cracked. Also, I'm paranoid about the quality of my narration and I don't want to do reams of longhand material every day. I'll stick to tasks.

Back in the old days, before LDs, I used to have a recurring stress nightmare where I'd have to drive someone to hospital, without knowing how to drive. There would be so many pedals and gearsticks and I couldn't work any of them out. I'd always get pulled over by the police. I think passing my test eventually cured that one...

Ok, finally got that written up. While lucid, completed the bicycle task and the subtasks pennyfarthing and race. I'm confused on how the points work, now, so I leave that up to the taskmasters help!

EDIT: Do we need to update the topic title? It still says "bike".

its interesting to hear peoples dream driving problems, i wonder if its a fairly common dream phenomenon?

a search reveals a thread in the archive from 2004 called problems with driving cars that has some more examples, mostly going too fast or brakes failing.

i had a bunch of fragments last night, just one that counts.

That's a great find, Obliverum. It sounds as if anxiety dreams about driving are especially common to people who can't yet drive. It's such a remote scenario, not something you'd actually think about aged 15 - why does it keep cropping up in dreams?

Also...octopus suit? You can't leave it at that! Was it a smartly tailored suit for an actual octopus, or an octopus disguise for a human, or some sort of spacesuit made to fit an astronoct? Please tell us!

I can't drive, haven't got a licence and I drive really carefully and cautiously in dreams so I don't get found out!

Looking back through my dream journal, cars have worked correctly in the driving dreams I had lasy year. But before that I've had driving dreams where the handling was wrong, especially if I brake hard. Maybe cars are one of those thngs like computers and mirrors that are hard for the unconcious to simulate accurately.

Also, I've had anxiety dreams about an especially narrow and tricky section of road (which in real life is now somewhat easier, as repeated collisions by drivers who didn't get it right have had the effect of a road widening scheme....)

Yeah, that's an important distinction, Susan.

I notice my nightmares have always been about not knowing how to control the car, rather than about the car itself malfunctioning. I use to have quite similar stress dreams about singing in a choir (or worse, solo) and, whatever I did, I just could not read the music!

I sympathize with that. IWL,there are some junctions near me where I would gladly pay for the cost of having traffic lights installed no My car is twice my own age, so I have to be extra careful.

Had 1 ND and 1 LD here this morning. No tasks but I did noticeably bring about the end of the world for the first time in my LD by destroying clones of the moon. ^^
