I go through random bouts of insomnia which are almost always fuelled by too much information packed into my brain.
It generally happens after I've spent a concentrated amount of time devouring books or watching an eclectic/unrelated horde of documentaries.
Last night, my brain linked up "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", "1001 Nights", "Jaws", and a some random fable/tale I vaguely recall, but don't know the origin of, involving whales... and one of the flash fiction snippets I wrote last year on my Skullduggery site.
Me thinks this means my brain is tired of edits and is stretching its muscles in preparation for new writing.
Me also things I am insanely tired this morning and 2 cups of coffee is merely lubricating my creaking neurones, not actually jump-starting them.
...and this is also probably why my story ideas are often a little off the beaten path.
...like Project #7, the "shoe story" involving a consignment store, world mythology, alcohol, and magic shoes.
I'm not sure which is weirder.
But for now, I think I'll stick this new strange idea into a dark corner of my head and let it sit there for a while, either to fade-out, or to gobble up new ideas/thoughts until it's a behemoth that demands it be written.
