No sleep till 'the end'

I absolutely wasted yesterday. I wrote two paragraphs of a new story and then just stopped. I had all freaking day to write and I didn't do anything!

Then--probably due to guilt--I couldn't sleep last night. I got up this morning annoyed with myself and decided I'm going to finish the Bell-Men rewrites today. If I don't get that finished, I get to deal with another sleepless night, and you know how I love my sleep.

That would put too much pressure on me. I do hope you get it done, the sooner we can all read it.

Well, considering that I just got home from yet another shopping trip and movie, I don't think it's going to happen. But I plan to stay up and write as long as I can keep my eyes open.

Far be it from me to push drugs, but Nyquil can work wonders in an emergency ; )

The last time I took Nyquil I had a terrible case of bronchitis (in college) and couldn't sleep due to coughing. A friend gave me a slug of the stuff and I slept for 16 hours straight. My roommate tacked a note on our door that said "Do not disturb. Dead person inside."

I think I want some Nyquil.

My next-cube-neighbor at work refers to Nyquil as the "Coughing, aching, sneezing, stuffy head, what the hell am I doing waking up on the kitchen floor medicine."

That's how you can tell it's the good stuff. :)

You could always try antihistamines. That's what I use.

How'd the writing go, anyway? ;)

Well, I wasn't able to finish, but I got a lot done. I'm working on it now too (between bouts of cleaning the house).
