Ok I have another silly question
PostPosted: Fri 13 Jan, 2006  Reply with quote

Ok, Iam getting better at recalling my dreams, but I want to know if it is ok to write a few notes in my notebook on my dreams and then just kinda continue writing them later? They are getting really long and I don't like to write very much, I feel like I'm trying to write a Novel and I do like to write but I don't like to write 100000000 pages per day, ok that's just an exageration but it almost seems like that. Iam wondering if it helps with recall to get better when I think about my dreams at night before going to bed or should I write it all down during the day? I know this is more of an opinion thing but I just want to know what you think. Thanks.

That depends if you can still remember them later, if you do it's ok. I'm always trying to write them as soon as possible so I don't forget anything.

Do you mean you think
a) about dreams you had?
or
b) about remembering your dreams dream the next day?

b) Will help you to remember the dream the next morning.
a) Could help you get lucid, but I'm not sure about that.

What I mean is, if you write half of your dream down and you still remember later, can you write down the other half of the dream later? They just get sooo long that I can't keep writing them all day. I don't know any other way to explain it. and thanks for the help! smile You seem to know what i'm saying but Iam sorry I can't explain it in a differant way. But I think you are right on track . Don't worry bout the other part of the message.

Mormor
thanks for your opinion. Iam going to try that today.

If I have a complicated dream, I just scribble down notes on keywords, activities, places, people etc, and write it later.

I write notes in the morning like 'LD- killed a badger/had good dinner' ext, then write it up later that day. Really depends on whether you trust yourself to remember that whole time. siiw

I usually write a few notes after breakfast. That gives me some time to remember them better, and I feel less groggy. Later I go write the whole dream down.

Yeah, it's pretty common practice (writing notes upon waking, then writing it up later). Works fine for me. You should be safe.

Speaking is generally less labourous than writing, which is actually quite slow.

I'd suggest buying a small pocket recorder. It's quite easy to quickly blab 5 pages of dreams in a minute or two, whereas writing it would take ~10.

thanks a bunch for the help. smile I'll keep that in mind. I'm going to go with the notes in the morning thing. Iam very shy with a tape recorder and Iam afraid someone will wake up hearing me speak out my dreams and I'd be all embarissed. My dreams sometimes get really weird. And people living with me would think Iam phsyco or something. Thanks for the help.

archdreamer - np.

luciditychick, don't worry about the other people. for about $20 (cheapie) you can buy a small mp3 based pocket recorder. my friend has one and the mic is sensetive enough that he can sit it on his lecture hall in a class of 300, and hear the lecturer fine. thus, you can easily whisper into it if you're shy, or are afraid of waking people/being heard, and it'll come out clear as day later.
