I want to be asleep, but i'm not.


I lay there, think of something, get up, write it down, lay back down, think of something else, get up, switch the computer on, come here, mooch around, turn the comp off, get into bed, think, nearly drop off, then think of something else that just HAS to be written down, and so on....

I know it's tough when you lose your muse, but will somebody shut mine up?


Instant karma's gonna get you.

Gemma, keep paper and pen by the bed, then you might not have to get up so often.
  

Now myself...(when I'm by myself)....I tend to fall asleep on the couch watching movies on Lifetime...wake up, and sit at the computer again....come here and then it's too late to go to bed. Then I'm back and forth here every chance I get. LOL

I used to keep pen and paper by the bed, but I found that I'd spend a half hour in the morning decoding my scribbled nonsense lol If I didnt wish to do that, Id have to lean over and turn on the light, which would wake me up further grrrr...

So now, Ive invested in a small voice recorder, the size of a credit card, and I sleep with it under my pillow. No more lying in bed for 5 mins thinking to myself, thats good, I really gotta get up and write that down or Ill forget it by morning, I just hit record, babbly away, and fall asleep again.
Once though, I forget to turn off record... and listened to 40 mins of my sleep talking the next morning.. was rather...err.. entertaining to say the least

Gemma- Here's hoping you actually did sleep when you said you were tired. Fighting with your Muse can be a real hassle.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

Doesn't work. I have several infusions of Bruachladich every night and all I want to do is write.

(What I write's rubbish, by the way, but it's fun)

Here are some ingredients:
Try some warm milk and sweet choclates, a hot bath,  light music, a massage, warmth and flower fragrances,  mingle them together to conjure and allure Sleep.  
Who may resist sweet temptation and seduction?  Especially from a lovely lady, certainly never shall Sleep be able to!
