      I'm definitely going to try this. The more you focus on your dream and analyze it the better your recall will get.
      I was so much older then, I'm younger then that now.

      Hey,
      I am planning to use and add my own parameters to this DJ Template, So Thanks! But I have a clarificaiton. When you mean Recall Techniques, what do you mean, I mean, isn't DJing done to improve Dream Recall? what other Techniques are there to improve Dream Recall? because I am unaware of any except DJing, Mantras, Self Hypnosis and RC,RRC,ADAing ?

      The whole idea of this is to just give you ideas how to set up your DJ. good luck. There are other ways to recall other than the compendium. If you need any more ideas, just ask.

      Wow, Thanks for the Link, I don't know how I overlooked that, anyways, I have successfully entered yesterday's and Today's entries into my DJ with your format, hopefully I can learn more things now, btw, as someone else mentioned, I have added "Supplement" parameter to my DJ since I am planning to use Vitamin B6 Rich foods/vitamin b6 tablets. Anyways, Thanks for your template.

      Everyone seems to miss that. Check out the stickies in each subforum before posting a thread. :S save you some time.

      I don't do/like supplements, so I didn't put anything about it on there. I feel like all it does is change expectation, and there are far better ways to do that.

      Hey, @BrandonBoss! Question: What exactly are tags supposed to be in this context? I'm a bit confused by this because I know that we have tags in DreamViews dream journals here; but I note every dream element that I encounter (people, settings, objects, events) as a 'possible dream sign.' What's the difference between tags and possible dream signs, as I use the latter?

      Also, a general complaint. I've recently stopped writing down the complete storylines of most of my dreams because I'm also (like someone you talked to earlier here) having trouble with how much time it takes to do that. Especially on the weekends, I usually have pretty good dream recall; but now, it's taking so long to even type up everything that I remember that it's getting tedious. Instead, I'm writing down a bunch of plot points at the centre of every dream to retain my memory of the stories; but it's not in as much detail as it would have been if I'd typed up the whole thing. I didn't realise how long it actually took to type up the full story until one day, I counted up 2 hours. So, do you have any tips on what I should do with the length to efficiency ratio of my dream journaling?

      I used to have the same problem as you (almost - 2 1/2 hours? You must be a writer!). I tried recording the dream on a voice recorder and then typing it up, it seemed very much easier to me because I typed every word I heard. Touch typing also works wonders if you're doing it on a computer.

      Whoo, thanks for the reply! And I am actually a writer, yes! Thanks for the suggestion; I think I'll actually use that! I heard the idea long ago and thought nothing of it; but now, I'm thinking that could work wonders. Saying it out loud and then copying the recording seems much easier than having to type everything from memory right away, even though my dream journal is on my laptop. Thanks!

      Hmmm even that can take up a long time when writing down epics. I am gonna write a tag guide on here soon. I dont ever DJ, because I know how to increase my.recall thanks to this. A short guide for it would be who, where, and what.

      Who I was with, where I was at, and what were we doing. If it changesnin dream, I make sure I keep it in the same paragraph. Next paragraph is the next dream.

      Okay, I guess I got the gist of it. But whoa, you don't usually write the full story in your dream journal anymore? That effective a method, huh? I think I'm going to try recording the story with my voice now anyway. Seems like it's gonna make everything a lot easier.

      yes! Start with this month. I noticed that that wasn't extremely clear when rereading it.

      Thanks Sensei for this awesome guide, didn't really think about this, but getting as much data about what your recall depends on is probably the first step towards improving it. Actually, I was so inspired by your post that I am currently working on an app which is based on what data you say should be collected and which is supposed to make the process of analyzing this data way easier.
