Dream continuation?

I was wondering... Can I start something like a story-driven LD, wake up, then continue the story next LD? I mean yes, I can recreate everything, but can I do it withouth the need to set everything up? Like just wanting to continue and I would?

Additionally, can I set up rules? Like give myself delf-imposed limits? Besides just not doing the action.

I think you could with practice. Perhaps you could write down a script, record yourself reading it, and play it over and over again.

Ive written my own stories I want to dream about, but still havent dreamed through the dream stories I've written. If you do write a script I suggest you only write the beginning part of the story, characters & setting, and a vague summary of the rest of the story. That way you can have some mind-blowing surprises/plot twists and challenging situations(if you want them) as you progress through the plot. Oh, and only write YOUR dialogue and not other characters'. Once again this is just a suggestion, you don't have to do this.

As for continuing the dream I'm wondering this myself. I think the best thing we could do is try very hard to re-imagine the last scene in the story before you woke up.
