Why Now

Why do I get my inspiration now, at bedtime. I am so tired I feel like i have anvils on my eye lids. Yet it happens all the time and if I dare go to sleep when this magical train of amazingness chugs its way across my weary brain then that is it no more stops at the creativity station for me.

Surely I cant be the only one it happens to? You know the drill, lights off, head down, eyes closed then bam, there it is. The lightening bolt, the flash illuminating your brain at this ungodly hour depriving you of your much needed shut eye and god knows you need it as who knows how long your baby/children/noisy neighbours will let you sleep for.

This was me tonight at midnight wanting to sleep yet unnaturally driven to write, to go forth and inform all others of the thought process going on under my mop of wild jet black hair, that too unnatural (premature greyness is heriditory)

Yet I actually have nothing to say, no witty post about about the days news, no advice for impending stages of children’s development, nothing, just the urge to write to get it all out like literary vomit (sorry) . To ease my possible insomnia (insanity) and to help me get that much needed shut eye, I am here writing about the fact that, well at bedtime my brain likes to do its best work. When I should be sleeping is when I am at my most creative and inspired  I would wonder why or how but I’m too tired!

How can I be too tired to heave myself upstairs to bed yet once there I am like a machine need to write, need to blog, need to get these damn words out of my head just let me sleep!

Anyway I will leave you with my midnight musings, oohh posh words are coming out to play now, and try to get some shut eye for the night and stave off the suitcase sized bags that will not doubt be the hangover of my late night ramblings.

Yet more random events from the frazzled household.

Spread the love

  1. It happens all the time! its like you can't switch off at night but then you're too tired to do anything about it then! xx #sharewithme

  2. #sharewithme I truly believe that this only happens to the best people, like, ever! Clearly, that includes me!! 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness this happens to me all the time. Even last night by midnight I was shouting in my head shut up, shut up, so I could sleep. But I just wanted to go back downstairs and write more and more. Even though it wasn't anything in particular. I find myself throughout the day doing this too. I think I have become obsessed. Like I have turned something on in my brain and now can't shut it off. Eek. Glad I am not the only one. Thanks for linking in Share WIth Me Week 10. So great to poke around your lovely blog too. #sharewithme

  4. If I can I will try to get it written down incl on my phone on the bus but I generally want to write as I go to sleep! I will now start carying around a little pad/notebook tho see if it helps thaanks

  5. No you are not alone. I get my most inspired creative moments at inopportune moments and just have to get it out! Sometimes if I leave it, the moment passes and then it's gone. I have learnt that just jotting down ideas and odd sentences in a notebook or my phone, also works. Try it!

  6. It is almost impossible for me to stick to the time I set myself for bed! There is always a post to be read, written or commented on and I'm constantly tired but at least I'm not alone! #Sharewithme

  7. I know what you mean! I often lie in bed mentally writing posts – though all the more I write them in the shower of a morning – write great posts and then can't remmeber most of it when I get to the laptop haha.
    Hope you sleep well tongiht

  8. That is exactly what I am doing now! Think it deserves it's own wikipedia page if it;s a bloggers thing 🙂
