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.
