In between sleep & inspiration

Lately my inspiration has been coming to me as I’m about to fall asleep. You know…that time when you’re floating inbetween consciousness & the deep restful sleep we all need. In my mind, the story and words are magical. I should get up and immediately write them all down. Instead, in my inbetween state, I tell myself that I will remember the words & write them the next day. The problem is…I don’t remember all of the fabulousness when I wake up. I remember bits & pieces but can’t seem to pull it all together.

To try to come up with a solution to this dilemma, I have put a notebook & pen on my bedside table. I’m hoping the next time inspiration strikes during my inbetween wakefulness time I’ll be able to capture enough of the story to retell it while I’m fully awake.

AfterHours Denver Christmas in the park 2015

Here is my third guest blog that I wrote about AfterHours yearly event, Christmas in the Park. This event just gets bigger and bigger each year. This year, we were able to give out more sleeping bags. Hand out more coats. Give a little joy to almost 1,000 of our homeless friends. I’m proud to be a member of this organization and to be able to write for them. Read the post here.
