Night time terrors!


Welcome to my blogging brain!

This happens to me nightly, never fails.

I always say I will get up and write the idea down when I’m inspired but I never actually do it…damn brain!

    You’ve just touched on the nightmares of creative peoples everywhere… And this is why we have insomnia (if I don’t get up and write mine down, they’ll be forgotten…because, as a man, my genetic code dictates that I forget stuff…).

    It’s so true. I write a lot of poems and for some reason my brain decides to get all its awesome ideas while i’m trying to sleep.

      Yes I know! Me too. Especially clever or new idea topics for my Mommy version of this blog. I guess it’s the mind winding down. I remember reading a study that talked about why children talk themselves to sleep and one of the main reasons was to process recalled information from the day..we must do the same as adults, quiet ourselves enough to hear the subconscious.

        That and I think we live in a world where people don’t have time or feel funny just sitting and doing nothing which causes us to have to use the time when we are trying to fall asleep to recall and process the events of the day. I can’t tell you how many times I have done this.

    There was a woman who had wonderful dreams on many nights. She’d get up in the morning and, later in the day, remember that she’d had one of those marvelous dreams. Unfortunately, she could never recall any of them. A friend advised her to put a little notebook and a pen by the bed, and record her dreams immediately upon waking.

    A week or so later, near lunchtime, she remembered she’d had another numinous dream, one in which a great secret had been revealed to her, something of tremendous importance. She also remembered scribbling in the notebook in the early hours of the dawn, right after the dream. She rushed upstairs, and there was the notebook, open upon the nightstand, with her handwriting scrawled across both pages. It must be the Secret of the Ages! She snatched it up and read:

    men are polygamous;
    women monogamous.”

      Me too! Oh well sleep is important too.
      some recommended using a digital recorder and leaving it beside the people so you can just mumble the thoughts with out getting out of bed..
      I think I might try that idea!
