I get really vivid lucid dreams and other times I sort of know I am dreaming, but am not fully lucid and it is vague upon remembering in the morning. And I experienced the full gamut between those extremes.
Sometimes lucid dreams are just like a regular dream except for the the fact that you FULLY know you are dreaming. It's like being alice in wonderland or experiencing a naturally induced hallucination. That's how I would describe it. BUT I am sometimes only half aware and it happens sometimes even if you had been fully lucid before.
Keep at it. Sounds like your on the right track.
First, you need to work on your self-awareness (you can do this in the real world by paying attention to your actions) and also use a dream journal to help you with dream recall.
Secondly, once you manage to induce a lucid dream, you need to work on intensifying your sensations in the dream world which will help you to remain there and prolong your experience. Deepen, maintain and manage the lucid state. Stabilise the lucid dream because lucidity tends to fluctuate in the spectrum of consciousness.
Lucid dreaming is a hybrid state of mind that needs to be maintained lest it fades into ordinary dreaming or propels one into the waking state. Work on this skill. Another thing that helps is to have an interesting plan of action in mind (devised before falling asleep) so that hesitation is avoided during dream consciousness. Dithering can quickly terminate the experience.
