It's Three in the Morning

It's 3:00 a.m. and I'm wide awake. Hubby is snoring and channel surfing has gotten on my nerves. I've looked in the refrigerator a few times, just to make sure there's nothing I want to eat. Roaming around downstairs isn't really appealing. I find the quiet creepy. Worked on the wip, but my characters keep reminding me how late it is. Yes, everyone, I'm an insomniac.

It doesn't really bother me tonight...this morning. I'm off work, so when I finally doze off, I'll be able to sleep in. I've gone to the doctor about my condition. She spent half an hour trying to convince me I'm depressed. Wow. That's news to me, I thought I was a pretty happy person. Shows how much I know about myself, huh?

Anyhoo. I've got a character from another story whispering in my ear. I think she's an insomniac too. Maybe I'll talk to her for a while. Never know where she'll lead me. I guess insomnia has its perks.


  1. Sometimes I think doctors are too quick to blame psychoses - like depression, etc. you have a lot on your plate right now - new release, another WIP, new grand baby....your body will catch up with your brain soon!

  2. LOL. I feel your pain. This whole Brandi out of work thing has me not able to sleep either. Good luck with the new character.

  4. I think my muse is just on a different time zone than I am. I often wonder if I should just get up and write, but then I think about the next day being unbearable so I stay in bed, trying to rock my characters back to sleep. I had more success with my children.

  5. I just read an interesting science article about how human sleep patterns used to be more segmented with people having an hour or two of wakefulness in the middle of the night.
