Does anyone else ever get so exciting about writing that they can't go to sleep. This happens to me sometimes and I'm just wondering if this is a good thing or a bad thing? Sure I get some good writing in but then i look and feel like a zombie all the next day. Am I the only one.....?
You are not alone. I am however currently suffering from a case of writers block. I just wish I could write.
i'm often up for twenty or more hours at a stretch until i've absolutely exhausted my sensibilities but find some good stuff comes out so i guess it's worth it.
I practice meditation before I go to sleep to slow my mind down. It always works.
With each passing day I find myself sleeping less at night (sleeping less in general!!!) and dedicating more time involuntarily to writing. Every time I turn the lights off an idea pops in my head and the ideas keep flowing until I write them down. And once I give in to turning the light back on I am sometimes back up until 5, 6, 7, 8 am.
No, it is not healthy, but perhaps it is just a phase because I lived under the harsh word and realities of writers block for months before and this is such a difference. It's a love -hate relationship. I love that I have so many ideas and that I am able to FINALLY write freely but I hate that I literally CAN NOT sleep for lack of my brain not turning off!!!
All in all I wouldn't trade this in for the world...
ha ha ha ha hypergraphia!?!? I hope not! LOL
So, my fellow hubber, "rest" assured you are not alone!!!
Happens to me all the time, get up all bleary eyed the next day and then do it all over again! I never learn.
