Tip of the Day: Measure your room before you buy a ping pong table off of Craig's List.
When I get cranking on a story, I hate to go to bed even when it gets late. In a way, it's a great feeling. I drag myself away saying I need to go to sleep bc I have to go to work the next morning.
Many times that I force myself to shut down the laptop and go to bed, I should've just kept writing bc my brain won't shut off. And when that happens, I can't sleep. Thoughts and ideas for the book are writing themselves into my brain.
Then I'm torn: Do I get up and go back to writing, or let the ideas stew in my head and get them on paper the next day? Will having the thoughts ferment for a night make them stronger or diluted?
Honestly, I usually stay in bed and toss and turn until sleep overtakes. The next day I jump back into my book with vigor. Are the new words written as I imagined them the night before? I'm not sure. But I know that I'm still psyched to write.
What about you? Do you jump back into night time writing, or try to get your zzzzzs?
