      Exclamation Now Hiring! - Lucid Dream Book project - Want in?

      As you all know, this lucid dreaming book was a project once put on the table, and for whatever reason, was then placed on the back burner in which it was allowed to accrue dust, and cobwebs. In essence...this forum is a dead weight on the board...an eyesore, a waste of main forum scrolling time.

      When this project was in its prime, I was semi-on it and from what I can tell, a lot of work had been done...but a lot of work still needs to be finished.

      Exploring the World of Lucid Dreams by Dr. Stephen Laberge, was a great book but it's also an old book. More research has been done since its publication and lucid dreaming hopefuls around the world need to know that. That's where you come in.


      If you are a proficient lucid dreamer whose studied your own dream world, if you're good at (or capable of) researching dream related subjects, sleep studies (like brain wave activity, REM, SP etc.), if you're talented with a digital paintbrush, if organization seems to be your strong suit and you know how best to place things in terms of sentence and paragraph structure, then...


      There's more work to be done on this project, and a lot of room for expansion. This project may take us 6 months to a year to wrap up.

      If you decide you want to be a part of this lucid dreaming cultural history and have the time to devote to the continuation of this project then we gladly welcome you to the team.

      Now...

      Currently, we are in need of:

      -Writers, Editors, Graphic Designers, Researchers, Organizers

      -A Graphic Design department leader (Someone to lead the graphic designs team)

      --

      -Part time staff must check in at least once a week

      -Full time staff must check in at least once a day




      If you are interested in becoming part of the staff on this project, - please COPY and paste the QUESTIONS and ANSWER UNDER the questions themselves (within this thread):

      1. Are you interested in working full time or part time on this project? (Full time would be like 1 hr. a day, part time would be anything less than that)

      2. Are you a good editor? (Please link some of your work if possible)

      3. Are you a good writer? (Please link some of your work if possible)

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?

      1. Full time

      2. No

      3. No

      4. Yes

      5. I have written things before, but this isn't the role I am look for in this book.

      6. Yes

      7. I can brainstorm well

      8. I am constantly looking for new information and techniques surrounding Lucid dreaming


      I would like to help out with this book through my own lucid experiences. I am not a good writer or editor granted. But I am willing to partake in any experiments for this book.
      I will try anything within a lucid dream to concrete the evidence in this book.

      I am a natural at the WILD technique. I have only been trying for a few months now and I have had 30+ LDs already.

      Also, I can also enter SP at complete will. So anything regarding SP I will be a great help. I believe SP should have a part in the book as Stephen Laberges book didn't cover it too well.

      If you need help in other areas, I would be happy to take part. For example, proof reading, cover design, illustrations and my own dream entries.


      That's about it


      EDIT-
      I am also active on this forum. I log on at least once a day.

      [QUOTE]1. Are you interested in working full time or part time on this project? (Full time would be like 1 hr. a day, part time would be anything less than that)
      When I have a particularly defined project that I am motivated on, I could easily be working full time for stints of labor. Other than that, when I'm only part-time, I would still be consistent.

      2. Are you a good editor? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      Ehh, probably not.

      3. Are you a good writer? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      I'd like to think that I can write. Decide for yourself, I guess. My stuff.

      4. Is organization one of your strong suits? (In terms of content, chapters etc.)
      I'm okay, I guess. I could help with organizational legwork- but not the managment of the content.

      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book
      I've worked on personal books if that counts. I read alot, hehe.
      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours?
      Depends. A number of people here are far better at inducing dreams, (including WILDs. Ugh.) Getting competent at LDing was moderately difficult for me. However, I have overcome alot of the traditional LD obstacles and can create very vivid/stable dream environments.

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...
      Depending on the subject. Some times I get tons of ideas, others I'm a dud.

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)
      I keep up on this sites fresh ideas, as well as occasionally but fairly regulraly research new LD ideas outside of DV.

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)
      Nah, not really.

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?
      Trying to balance the varying opinions on LD issues by showing how alternative opinions, (alternative from what is generally accepted,) could help given lucid dreamers.

      11. Additional comments you'd like to add
      Not particularly. That about covers it.

      I used to work for a Japanese businessman so yeah...I organize.

      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book.

      None.

      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours?

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...

      I do better brainstorming with others than alone.

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)

      Incidentally yes, especially books and studies on nightmares and dream control.

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)

      No, unfortunately not.

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?

      11. Additional comments you'd like to add

      1. FULL

      2. Not really

      3. There are better, definitely. But I do catch grammar and spelling mistakes.

      4. I can organize, but I'd be reluctant to do so if there were better people for it.

      5. None, whatsoever.

      6. VERY

      7. I am creative, but need a push, ergo this is perfect.

      8. I browse around the forum every single night, looking at mainly the lucid dreaming related ones. If there isn't something I can find here, I go to LD4All and look at their resources available.

      9. No.

      10. I am knowledgable when it comes to this topic, and I want to revive it. I'd like to spread awareness and lastly, be part of Dreamviews' new cycle of excellence. I want to be part of this project and I will help in any way that I can. I have an internal drive to learn about all things lucid, so you can bet I'll be one of the longest lasting members on this project

      11. This will be awesome! Can't wait to have a physical copy of the book!
      The question is What is the question?
      Thanks, Jeff777, for adopting me.

I can not only help with the writing, especially the science related topics, but I can get the book tons of buyers. I'll talk more tomorow

      For the record, I normally have great grammar, but typing on iPods is no east feat k

      I don't think I will be an active member, but just in case:


      1. Are you interested in working full time or part time on this project? (Full time would be like 1 hr. a day, part time would be anything less than that)

      Part time, definitely, and my schedule changes a lot.

      2. Are you a good editor? (Please link some of your work if possible)

      Haven't had much practice lately, but yes.

      3. Are you a good writer? (Please link some of your work if possible)

      More in Portuguese than in English, but you can see some of my stuff at the chapters. I think I even have a WILD tutorial here on DV. And, of course, we have http://www.lunar-light.org (text and design were made by me).

      4. Is organization one of your strong suits? (In terms of content, chapters etc.)

      Absolutely.

      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book

      Well, I started writing this one Also helped in many scientific essays, translated some others; wrote a website, currently working on a mathematical hypothesis.

      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours?

      No; and I have to work a lot to get one. Nevertheless, I know a lot of theory about it.

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...

      Yes, but I do it better alone than with others.

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)

      I know a lot about it already, including neurophysiology, but I can't say I'm tuned on the topic.

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)

      I can fix one quick thing or another, but I'm far from being a specialist.

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?

      Probably helping keeping things scientifically rigorous, or helping fit the current scientific literature into it.

      11. Additional comments you'd like to add

      My schedule is terrible and I've been having to study overtime lately. Do not count on me to do things. If I have the time to show up and help, I promise I'll do.

      Saying quantum physics explains cognitive processes is just like saying geology explains jurisprudence.

      Clairifying this book's goals

      Before I commit myself to this project, I'd like to solidify what direction we're heading in with this book. What are we trying to accomplish with it and who is our target audience?

      If we want to just explain lucid dreaming just to get the word out and attract new members, then charging for this book might not be the best route to take.

      If we do charge for it, that's going to eliminate a lot of potential newb readers. Only people who are seriously interested in dreaming or LDing are going to shell out the cash for a book of any sort. So if we plan on charging, there better be stuff of interest to vetran lucid dreamers.

      The different approaches in pricing (free of not) will determine what kind of people we attract to the site. The free scheme will likely generate more traffic to DV, but those people are less likely to stick around and generally don't contribite all that much. The people who pay are likely to be more commited and have more to offer the discussions on this site.


      Also publishign style is very important in determining how things get written. There are unique style available to each format (e-book or paper) that would result in completely different books. If I were writing for an e-book with the purpose of attracting people to the site, then I'd include lots of DV links for additional reading or relevant discussions. With paper I'd be forced to choose the examples I include more carefully.

      If attracting new members is one of the primary goals of this book, then sprinkling in some BD topics for a dash of flavor could be helpful. Let's face it, people love that kind of stuff. I'm not saying go overboard with it, but even hintig at some greater mystery goes a long way in fireing up the imagination and grabbing people's attention.


      Really I want to know if you want to be a straight forward boring flat scientific presentation of facts, or if you want to present those same facts with drama and flare. The topic of dreaming just has so many directions it could take, it would be best if we're all on the same page.

      Thinking about it, if this is an ebook then the whole thing would be pointless.
      The book is covering information that is already present on the website. People would rather go on this website to look at the information rather than read it from a PDF file.

      Whereas an actual book allows people to read it when they haven't got access to the website. Like if they are on holiday, school, work and during the night.
      Books have a more personal value that ebooks as well. In my opinion there is nothing better to have a good book in your hands.

      The pricing is an issue. If it turns out to be an ebook then there's nothing stopping it from being free. But an actual book costs money to print and ship.
      If that was to be free then we will need to set up some sort of donation scheme.


      I hope all that made sense

      The chapters so far are rather short and don't really warrant a full book as of yet.

      Perhaps we should start with some smaller creative projects and work our way up to a book. A collection of essays or perhaps a series youtube videos.

      1. Are you interested in working full time or part time on this project? (Full time would be like 1 hr. a day, part time would be anything less than that)
      Part time.

      2. Are you a good editor? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      I make few errors, sure, but my true strength is writing.

      3. Are you a good writer? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      I got 87% on my English exam and only showed for about five classes the entire term. I'll PM you a sample text at some point.

      4. Is organization one of your strong suits? (In terms of content, chapters etc.)
      Yes, I am very organised.

      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book
      None, save for some text on exams and creative writing pieces at school. My only weakness is when given bad ideas / material to build off to start with. If the idea is good, so am I.

      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours?
      I know my theory however have lacked the ability to accomplish it.

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...
      I can brainstorm well, and tend to bring fewer ideas that have deep context and thinking than a flurry of less-refined ideas.

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)
      I try.

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)
      Yes, I know Photoshop well as well as 3d designing suites such as 3ds Max. I can illuistrate, design logos and borders etc, draw diagrams and so forth.

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?
      I feel I could help write the material and bring any logos or illuistrations you may need to the table. I can PM you some of my CG work sometime soon.

      1. Are you interested in working full time or part time on this project? full time

      2. Are you a good editor? I have written many books and short stories. I have edited peoples' works also, but I don't have them on my comp. I will soon.

      3. Are you a good writer? Four years of english and a year of Fiction, also years of my own previous writing? Damn well should be.

      4. Is organization one of your strong suits? Half and half

      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book. Again, I've written short stories and I have started and finished a book or two.

      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours? Yes

      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Yes. Setting off fire alarms? My brother does that

      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? I'm up to date but not news central.

      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? Oh sheesh. Two years of MultiMedia DigitalDesign and I swear if that doesnt pay off I'm suing my school. I've worked in adobe photoshop, flash, dreamweaver, illustrator, and indesign, I'm trained in that.

      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? Insight, design, editing. How do you feel you'll be of most help? Design and editing.

      11. Additional comments you'd like to add.
      Please note the two years in MultiMediaDigitalDesign. I'm in the process of making my own website and I'll get my work up there and link you to it... just let me know if I should hurry on it or not.

      Part time, maybe 30 mins to an hour a day, but it depends on what needs to be done and whether anything pops up. Until school comes around I am pretty much available most of the day.
      2. Are you a good editor? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      Grammatical errors, spelling errors, and the like are very easy spot; yes.
      3. Are you a good writer? (Please link some of your work if possible)
      Well, I consider my grammar and spelling to be alright. I try to make as much sense as possible in a short amount of words; hence, efficiency.
      4. Is organization one of your strong suits? (In terms of content, chapters etc.)
      For the most part, yes.
      5. List any prior experience you may have had regarding working on a book
      If I can recall correctly, Kromoh was going to hand this project over to me several months ago.
      6. Is lucid dreaming a strong suit of yours?
      I have had over 50 DILDS and have recently re-emerged into the topic. I am mediocre.
      7. Are you good at brainstorming? Or do you tend to set off fire alarms...
      I would say I am mediocre.
      8. Do you remain current on lucid dreaming studies and new information regarding the subject in general? (If so, please give a brief explanation)
      I stay updated for the most part, as it is not such a rapidly developing field. It does remain pretty much the same thing, with some exceptions of course.
      9. Is graphic designing a strong suit of yours? (please list examples if applicable)
      I like to make minimalistic designs that please the eye. I use Photoshop CS4 and other tools.
      10. What do you feel you could bring to the table on this project? How do you feel you'll be of most help?
      I think I would be suitable for proofreading, a bit of organizing, and maybe some graphical components and some touching up.
      11. Additional comments you'd like to add
      As I have been here on DV for a while and my post count clearly shows that I did not contribute much to this community, I would like to solidify the little contributions that I have made.
