Writing while you sleep

Writing while you sleep?

Now – there’s a thought! Wouldn’t it be ‘luvverly’  if you woke up each morning and the writing pixies had been busy all night on your keyboard?  Sure to be nothing but fairy tales though.

Say – there’s another story idea – WHAT IF you wrote a story about pixies writing your story while you slept?

See – I’m full of ideas!

And pleeeeze – do not say I’m off with the pixies! That would be fairy insulting and damaging to my elf-esteem.

(Picks up large jar full of tablets. Looks at clock. Yes – time for my medication.)

Seriously folks – there will be times when you’ve been working hard on a story and you get blocked, or tired or just cannot see where to go next. In those situations it might be better to quit writing, get some good sleep and let your sub-conscious take over for a few hours. Then you can come back to the writing with fresh eyes, and a refreshed mind. Might just work wonders.

Good writing.

    Ah… I do love the sound of the writing pixies. I have a problem with these magical little helpers. They vanish when the alarm goes off. I know about keeping the journal by the bedside but by the time I pull myself together enough to compose a word its all faded away. If anyone knows how to bribe the little folk in to staying around, please let me know.

    Hi there Nicole.

    I think we might be on to something here. Could we start some research on leaving different kinds of food, or refreshments, or confectionery, or items of clothing, or some elfish delicacies to bribe… er… encourage them to hang around.

    When we have determined what works best, then we could market the idea and make our fortunes. Strictly 50% share of the proceeds to each of us mind you.

    What think you?
