Empty head, insert sleep

I was up til almost two o'clock this morning. My head ripe with possiblities and characters who wouldn't shut up!!!
I finally got up at 12:43, made a bowl of cheerios, and jotted down dialogue and the last three sentences of my story. Having done that, my head no longer teemed with words and images. And finally, after much ado, I settled down to sleep.
I like the voices in my head. They keep me company. But we seriously need to have some type of policy about letting me sleep. You know... a little rest for the wicked, so to speak.
After all, how can I tell their story with a bitchin' headache and the personality of a bear woke from hibernation?
Any of you ever see the Sponge Bob episode where Sandy the Squirrel tries to go into hibernation and Patrick and Sponge Bob become stuck in her little bubble? You know that scene where they wake her up and she looks like the most homicidal squirrel ever created?
That would be me. *grinning*
I HATE having to go back to sleep and try to catch up on the slumber I missed. Just wasted hours. ACK!

But during my many channel surfing travels, I saw this, on CNN I believe. I'm not advocating anything. But it's a rather neat way to keep that blog forever.

MUST write and silence the voices.

Wow honey, I don't know how you do it. To have such creativity spinning around in your head at all times, it boggles the mind. I am awed by you literary types, soooo much talent and potential! Now, tell those inconsiderate voices to shut the hell up, lil' momma needs her beauty rest!

Those voices in our heads can be SO persistent, can't they? And obnoxious. *g*

I think my voices and I are on different schedules. I'm sitting here trying to edit and nada. Now as soon as I settle in bed tonite they're worse than a beautyshop full of women. blah blah blah blah. Maybe tonite I'll stay up later to try to catch them.. no work tomorrow for me.

My characters know damn well they'd best not keep me up at night or I'm likely to write them into a scene involving a birthday party for a 6 year old at Chuck E. Cheese.

Yes, I've only seen that episode 500 times. Dirty Dan and Pinhead Larry. I love that one.
