Dreams can be a source of raw inspiration to authors. You just have to find a way to unlock it. Here are some tips on how to use your dreams to their full advantage:
1.Keep a dream journal
By simply keeping a pad and paper next to your bed allows you to quickly jot down notes so you can remember in the morning. You don’t have to analyze the dream in the middle of the night, but write down the things that will spark your memory.
2. Take up daydreaming
Let your mind drift. Open your mind to other possibilities.
3. Go deeper into your dreams
Lucid dreaming is the ability to recognize that you are dreaming. Once you have the ability, you will be able to control your choices and behaviors in the dream world. Explore different outcomes and gain control over your dreams.
Now, I understand some people may say ‘I don’t remember my dreams’ or ‘I don’t dream at all’. My recommendation is to begin with day dreaming and see if you can take it further. There is a lot we are missing about dreams, and there are ways we can learn about the specific ones we are having- we must not forget that our minds are constantly working. As a writer you can use that to your advantage. Just don’t try too hard!

I like that “don’t try too hard.” I got this mental image of someone making an extreme straining face. 😂
