Why is falling asleep like writing?



Because it has to happen every day, or I am cranky.
Because it is a miracle every time it happens.
Because I don't remember exactly how it happened the night before, but I know it'll happen again, somehow, tonight.
Because I can't force it; I just need to be ready, with my teeth brushed and flossed / mind attentive and butt in chair.
Because it's a gift.

Glad you agree!

You sleep with your butt in the chair? ;)

Yat-Yee said...

Nevets: yes, and I brush and floss before I write.

C. N. Nevets said...

haha Hey, I usually brush and rinse before I write, if it's going to be a serious session and not just five, ten minutes of keyboard pounding.

Yat-Yee said...

For that you'll only brush and not rinse?

C. N. Nevets said...

Yep! I'm all about efficiency!

I don't want to even think about the comparisons between having a bad writing day and a bad night of sleep... See #1, reference "cranky..."
