Insomnia for Authors
Updated: Jul 15, 2019
Don’t think about the book you’re writing.
Don’t tell yourself that you’re just telling yourself a bedtime story.
Don’t imagine extraneous scenes for characters in your book, complete with dialogue.
Don’t delude yourself that you’re dreaming when your characters are doing all kinds of stupid things. You’re still writing in your head.
Don’t think about the mosquito bites.
Don’t…Don’t imagine elaborate brand new backstories for characters in your next book, with scenes, dialogue, exposition and...chapter breaks.
Don’t rewrite existing scenes in your head over and over. That’s not sleeping; it’s obsessing.
Don’t draft a blog post about insomnia
In my memory this was longer and funnier. Or at least I thought it was. 😉
