A benefit of not having a job
Insomnia isn’t that big a deal. There were times when I was working where I would go to bed, not because I was tired, but because I had to be at work in a few hours. I would lay there and my mind would wander. And when my mind wanders, I often come up with story ideas or ways to get myself out of jam I had written myself into. I should get up and write, part of me would think. But I need to be at work in a few hours, another part of me would counter. So instead of doing either, I’d lay there debating with myself. But now if I can’t sleep and I have an idea, why shouldn’t I just get up and write it? So I’ll get up at noon instead of ten, it’s no big deal.
