Listen. I love you.
I woke up about 10:30 Monday morning and haven't been to sleep since. Basically I'm writing this post now to see what happens. Should be interesting/embarrassing/informative/none-of-the-above.
Insomnia's a kick in the head. I was tired when I went to bed last night, but for some reason couldn't make that magic sleep happen. I tried all the usual tricks. No soap. Around 2 am I gave up, figuring if nothing else worked than THAT will.
Instead, my brain wanted to revisit some of my favorite characters. So, in my head last night I:
--Wrote two battle scenes.
--Wrote a tear-jerking reunion scene.
--Wrote a funny/confrontational scene.
--Invented two--yes, TWO--magical creatures.
--Sorted out the logic behind two magical items.
--Figured out where/how the dagger will be within my MC's reach for that one critical scene.
--Figured out which character will be named for the winner of my naming contest from last year.
--personalized that autograph for the book I'm sending to my cousin.
I think I figured out my problem. My characters don't SLEEP. So I don't SLEEP.
Yeah, you're probably right. It's time to get the kids up for school anyway.
