Cure for Insomnia? Writing

For some reason, I haven't been sleeping very well, even though my body cries out in exhaustion most of the time bedtime rolls around. I tend to toss and turn, my mind racing, until I finally give up, turn on the light, and start reading.

Last night I was determined to thwart the Insomnia Beast, and even though it was nearing 11 p.m., I started writing.

And I kept writing until 1:30 a.m.

Result? I slept like a baby.

Except I had to wake up early to take my daughter to school. And then I had to come home and take a nap.

Slick is a master napper.
Hmm. I may have to rethink this strategy...

  2. Slick looks so cute! He's a lovely colour.
    I hope your insomnia sorts itself out soon. At least you can get more writing time at the moment!

  3. I write best late at night too, and make up for it with naps. I usually deal with insomnia with reading though. I need to try writing instead.

    1. I think I write best late at night, too, which doesn't make for a very nice day at work the next morning!

  4. Insomnia is so frustrating! The worst part is just knowing how tired you are going to be in the morning-but I'm glad you got some writing done.

    Here's hoping for restful nights in the future:)

  5. Insomnia sucks rocks. And so does a bed that feels like it's full of rocks. (That's my bed.) But hooray for the writing and well sleeping. And the napping. Especially the napping.

    1. Thank the Lord for naps. I don't know what I'd do without them in the last few weeks!
