….osme parts oar also half demolished

and dot liook too goofd.

Dreams are an important source of information about things I usually already know about me. But they make me aware of what I go through in a beautiful and fascinating way. When in a dream state I experience the emotions in a rather direct way and visualize them into images that often can be universal symbols that strike a cord with any human. They are simply great stories or fragments of it.
As I want to write from the heart I want to use these sighs from my inner world when writing.

In earlier days I would try to memorize the entire dream and write it down on paper as soon as I was out of bed or had time to do so. A few days ago I started the computer after waking up as I wanted to have it written down at the right place immediately. How irritating it was to wait for the computer to finish
whatever it does. When I finally could write I
noticed that I had a lot of trouble controlling my fingers, probably because I still wasn’t really awake and occupied by the dream and it’s emotions. They didn’t
go to the right letters and I had trouble concentrating on doing it
right. It was a frustrating experience but there was not much I could do. Luckily I can read sentences like “osme parts oar also half demolished
and dot liook too goofd” and “….bu I can tog to far becuas ei must
get back at some poitn venthoggh I am… “.

In order to remember a dream it helps to go through it right after waking up. Following all the scenes in the story will often bring up already half forgotten fragments and will make you memorize it better.
A few days ago I recorded a dream with my invaluable mobile phone only a few minutes after waking up and after finishing the going-through to find all the fragments. I simply spoke out loudly while rehearsing the dream a final time.

Yesterday, a few days after the dream was dreamt, I transcribed the recording to my computer as literally as made sense in order to preserve a casual and direct tone in the text.
I think this practice helps my writing as I get an insight in my personal world in inspirational story fragments written down in a manner of speaking that I can’t really duplicate when sitting down to write anything like it.

I’ll make it a habit.
