Um...why dream journals are only a partial solution

The other day, I woke up after a particularly vibrant dream. One with plot structure and a punch to it. I knew it would be interesting to write about it later, maybe blog on it, so I jotted down some clues-to-memory in what counts as my dream journal. Went back to bad. Case closed. Contract fulfilled. It was time for my sleep. Now, speed forward one week, and this is all that I have written about the dream. I have no idea what this means.

An agency is using dream entities to kidnap and torture a young woman. Me and the guy with a crush on her (not knowing what is up with her) take part in some elaborate game where you earn tokens to play and compete with the dream entities.

Questions raised by this dream journal entry:

But hey, it was apparently all meta- and stuff.

Just as note: if you keeping a dream journal, actually fill in the gaps while you remember the dream. Or make something up. Either way, a short two-sentence description will not an adequate clue-to-memory make a week later, when you look into it.
