    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!!!
