Wow, kudos :)

It's nice to get a brain wave and get the writerly juices going.

I don't think I could write right now. If I did, heaven only knows what it would come out as or who would be able to interpret it.

ad_lucem that is awesome!

When I cannot sleep I either write, read, or draw. I am not an artist and when I say draw I mean abstracts - I like playing with colour. Though in the summer when it is light at about three thirty I might go for a walk in the little wood.

Thanks!

Midnight writing sessions can be so productive. Especially, if you're a night owl.The trick is always stopping while you're ahead, right?

I've turned in things at college before thinking "oh, this is brilliant stuff" but I probably should have gotten some sleep and then edited. Other times, it worked perfectly.

I'm hoping to get more into the art for a while...to help me chill. Had to use the mouse for everything yesterday because the graphics tablet is missing the stylus/pen thingy.

If you're into art, though, check out this site:

Beware the manga overload, but other than that, there's some phenomenal talent over there. I love watching the process of it all. It's like street painting/madonnari online.
