News from the Other Side
It's been too long since our last update, and so much has happened it's hard to think of where to start. We've been slaving away at the book--writing, reading, and getting some much needed sleep...research. We're very pleased to announce that we've finished the first draft of Oneironautics: A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming! We've also planned out the rest of the writing process, week by week, and we expect to have a finished draft in 2-3 months, hopefully shipping around then. We've also come up with plans for the website, soon to be implemented.
What the hell is taking so long, you ask? Good question, dreamers. While writing the actual book does take some time, a lot of our time so far has gone to outlining and condensing ideas down to their simplest forms. The main goal is for our book to be CLEAR and INFORMATIVE, and we're happy to say the train is chugging along nicely in that direction. We've decided to post our table of contents, you can find it here on our blog. What you will see are a lot of cool chapter titles, all layed out in a very deliberate order. What you won't see are a huge list of incomprehensible topics and acronyms, befuddling your chance to have a lucid dream.
We hope that the TOC will mercilessly tease you and get you excited for the book, but if that's not enough, we'll be posting EVERY TUESDAY to our blog until the book is finished, so check in for tips, techniques, and updates. Kicking it off this Tuesday will be three posts answering this question: What are Dreams?
Hopefully you've been doing some research yourself-- getting a good night's sleep and having some pungent, adventurous dreams. We've been brimming with excitement for you to read the book and start the next step in becoming a conscious, lucid dreamer.
