Up Late And Way Past My Bed Time

Updated on December 5, 2013

Searching For A Story

My eyes are tired

I have put in a long day

This day was over about four hours ago and I won't stop

Inspiration is around the corner and I can smell it

The excitement has warn off but I keep on slugging away

I am sure my next thought will take me closer

My next tap of each key will bring my story to life

Patience and willpower are my partners in crime

They have not let me down but take awhile to get warmed up

I can do almost anything

I chose to bring new thoughts up close

The only noise I can hear is my refridgerator humming

I think it is trying to tell me something

Then again I could be overtired and hallucinating

Either way I will press for a story

I do one last stretch and now my eyes are three quarters shut

I have met my match and now they have called my bluff

I will leave and head to bed

Rest on it

Think of it

Sleep on it

Then I will see if my thoughts start to multiply

If all else fails

I have tried to use all my resources

You have not seen the last of me

A small setback that will buy me some time

For all those writers who are writing

Let a little of you rub off

I am not asking for much

Just a writing spotter

So I can pull in the power

Then right for the next hour

      Jo Goldsmith11 I see and feel so much. Some things I can touch some things I can't. Both exist and are real to me. I love to share in hopes that other people like you feel the same way. So we can continue to help each other and push on. Enjoying this wonderful life together. Gypsy Rose Lee You are doing what you feel and it always is the right choice. It doesn't seem like it at the time but I think after we look back we are so thankful we did what we did. Thank you for reading my thoughts and sharing your comments. Wishing you both more inspiration and will power to follow your heart.

      That's exactly how it works with me. As soon as the brain gets jolted and inspiration comes trickling in there is no stopping me. I am at the comp and writing away. The bad thing is that I don't get enough sleep I just can't stop until I'm done with what I have on my mind and then when I do drop off as soon as I come awake there are those thoughts again.
