Writing and Insomnia

Good news: I have managed to do a lot of writing this past week and have been exceeding my minimum 250 daily word count.

Bad news: most of it has been academic writing.

I had told myself that I wasn't going to include academic writing in my word count, but reality is reality and my reality includes writing a lot of papers as this semester winds down. I have managed to sneak in a few creative writing moments over this past week. I'm starting to flesh out this screenplay idea about a heterosexual couple exploring the world of BDSM. That's all I'm saying about it for now. I'm really excited about how the story is just flowing onto paper. It's been an idea that's been floating in my brianium (I don't think that's a real word, but so what. I like it.) for a few years now.

I've been trying to formulate some good ideas for some erotica short stories, but having no luck. I've tried reading some erotica lately, but everything seems so tame and just not horny. Maybe I should look at reading porn. There is a difference between the two. I'm not quite sure what it is, but I know it when I see it.

I can't be sure, but I think all this creative energy that I have stored up is the reason why I'm suffering from a bit of insomnia. There are days when all I can think about is getting in bed and going to sleep. The minute I get into bed my brain turns on and won't shut the hell up. It's not especially pleasant seeing how I usually set my alarm for 4:30 am (with the hopes of working out) and 5:40 am (the latest I can sleep during the work week and get to work on time). The melatonin tablets aren't working anymore.

Whine whine whine. :(
