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.
