      Recently, due to a non-intentional lucid, I've become interested in lucid dreaming again. Last night I had the longest and one of the most vivid LDs (out of about five that I've recalled my entire life) to date.

      This particular LD was also the first time I remembered to at least try to exercise some form of control and stability. Of course I tried flying. I jumped and fell. I got up and tried again. Then somehow I ended up on a building and jumped off of it only to fall, and the shock of hitting the ground woke me up. Also, at some point during the dream I tried to summon a gun (presumably to defend myself?) and needless to say, nothing happened. The most basic problem I guess, is that I'm having difficulties doing "anything" I want to because my dream self doesn't think as clearly as my waking self at this point.

      More specifically, I was wondering about how detailed I should be invisioning the dreamscape/characters of my LDs whenever I'm planning out how the dream will right before I go to sleep. To give an example, I'm planning to have an LD where I ressurect some of the jazz greats and have a jam session right there with Coltrane, Brown, Roach, Monk, and whoever else I can dream up. Trouble is, I can't get a very clear picture of what everything will look like. Should I just let my mind fill in the gaps when I get there, or should I formulate a distinct vision of how it will be?

      I'd say the more detail the dreamscape/characters you're envisioning the better. I'm it can work on any level of detail, but obviously it would be much better if you had a really good idea of exactly what you wanted to be created. Of course, like you've heard on this site a million times, it's all dependent on the person and the dream.

      My suggestion for the second part, though, is try to get a good mental picture of what you want it to be like pre-dream. That way, you have a good motivation for a lucid and sometimes, that's all it takes.

      I agree, the more detailed the better. Especially concentrate on how the dream makes you feel - focusing on feelings and emotions as well as the dreamscape and characters should make it feel more realistic, and therefore more likely to be successfully incubated.
