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.
Sleep is just an ancient Hindu religion that is suppose to be good for you yet resembles some sort of narcotic addiction. Once you start, you want to do it again and again... ;D
