Re: what do you do when you can't sleep and too tired to wri

When I can't sleep I usually get out of bed and make my self a hot cup of tea. Too bad I don't find any inspiration to write when I'm in insomniac mode. It would be great though to be productive when I can't sleep, but this never happens. I usually sit around in my living room, drinking that hot cup of tea and think of nothing. Yes, that's right. My head is empty.
There are also other tips I can share with you, insomniacs. Drinking a cup of milk will help you fall back asleep quickly as milk (and many other foods) contain tryptophan, which is a natural sleep hormone. It is for good reason that there’s an old wives’ tale that says a glass of warm milk before bed helps you to sleep. Anyway, you can read more here in this article on . My second advice would be to maybe consider buying yourself a new bed (if you often can't sleep) or at least a new cushion. This might sound expensive, but think of it this way - how much is your good night's sleep worth? :)
My sleepless sessions usually last for an hour or so. I haven't yet discovered what causes them. Maybe stress, maybe something else. Will need to figure out this soon. Anyway, I'm off to bed now :) Good night!

Legend says, when you can't fall asleep, you are awake in someone else's dream.

You know - lately I've had a lot of trouble sleeping, and instead of trying to fuss over book details I've been playing with cover art. Just tinkering with my program, playing around. I may or may not self-pub, but it's a heck of a lot of fun.

Two products that may help: Midnite, a melatonin and herbs tablet, and Rescue Sleep, a homeopathic spray that contains alcohol. I found the first OTC for $10, and the second online, a product by Bach.

Chocolate. A couple of snack size Nestlé's Crunch bars or Andes mints knocks me right out. No idea why. If I eat chocolate during the day I want to nap. Backwards I guess.

Opposite of that problem. I fell asleep mid-sentence. I woke up this morning to the word 'but' written down with nothing after it and no idea what was supposed to come after it. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
