I can relate with most of the replies on this thread.
I still remember the day I first learnt about lucid dreaming. I somehow came to ld4all that day itself, and someone mentioned there, that if I am excited enough, I’ll have a Lucid dreaming that night itself.
Which I did, and i cannot stress this enough, it was an AMAZING feeling the next morning. Sigh.
This was 5 years ago. Since then, I’ve always managed a dream journal (it kind of became a habit) but I never took Lucid dreaming as a serious pursuit consistently. It was always an on-off relationship.
I had a bunch of LDs yesterday (which is why I am back to this forum) and I want to take this up more seriously.
Generally speaking, whenever I get lucid I just try to have sex with any girl I can find (Please don’t judge me), but in my LDs this morning, I was asking my DCs for some nice plots, some nice characters, things like that(I like to write fiction). It didn’t help me, but I’m pretty sure that the urge I have (the desire) to find a nice plot/character, would lead to some useful lucid dreams and boost my creativity.
Unless you don’t have an end-goal like this, I guess it’s tough to stay put in this pursuit, because, well, it’s not real in the conventional sense.
(I am saying all the motivation I have built today, hope it stays for long this time )
