For most of my adult life I have had bouts of insomnia. There are just times when my body isn’t tired or my brain won’t turn off. They used to be nights of no sleep. Lately, they have been nights of sleeping super hard and deep for two to three hours, then waking up and off goes my brain into hyper space.
Some nights I lay there plotting, or fixing plot holes, or world building. Some nights I lay in bed and stare at YouTube until my eyes close again…or more often, until I’ve come to the conclusion that we are done sleeping (we being me and my brain), and I get up, start some coffee and go sit at the computer hoping to get some of whatever I was plotting or building down on paper.
Last night I was awake around 1:30am, for no apparent reason that I could see, and my brain took off plotting the second book in the Blood Witch story. There’s a whole new world, you see, that needs proper world building attention! I watched Bob Ross paint for a while and started to doze, but as soon as I turned him off again, I was awake.
Took a while to finally sleep again, but sleep I did. For at least an hour and a half. Having no clue what time I went to bed last night, I’m not sure how much sleep I actually ended up getting, but I guess that’s what coffee is for.
And that coffee is tasting mighty good right now. I’m taking the day off of the job hunt for an outing with my sister-in-law and niece, which I suppose means I have to wear real clothes, and I probably should finish cleaning out the car. Part of my Disneybound costume from January is still in the back seat.
So, I’m going back to my coffee before it gets cold. I hope Wednesday is wonderful and filled with blessings for you, Readers.
