Writing and insomnia

So it happened again. Late night inspiration struck.
My head was blank all day and then at 11. PM, when I was so tired and about to go to bed, my brain began flooding with ideas for a new novel. So I spent hours writing down a whole new concept and new plot.

I think that I get all my best ideas at night, particularly late at night. Sometimes I have to wake up at 3AM to write them down. I am not an insomniac, but being a writer is certainly turning me into one!

Can sleep deprivation lead to heightened creative and more clear thought processing? I’ll have to look into it, but it definitely seems to do so with me!

What about you? When do you find yourself getting your best ideas?

The best entertainment there is…

The best thing about being an author is that you always have a reason to be busy.
Boredom can sometimes feel like an inescapable thing, but as long as you can write then you have a passport to go to wherever you want for free. Sometimes I find that the only way to entertain myself is through the inventions of stories. The appeal of watching T.V can sometimes wear off, what with all the repeats, but when you write…there is always a new chapter.
