Coffee squirrelI feel like the dog in “UP”–SQUIRREL! So, a little of this, a tad of that, and the odd tid of whatever.

Me: Brain, go to sleep.
Brain: You should write SciFi.
Me: Yeah? Uhm…no. I don’t have time.
Brain: You totally should. I mean…look at this commercial!
Me: *watches commercial for some drug*
Brain: See? There’s the name for your main character.
Me: *thinking* Oh, shit. That makes sense.
So here have some names for SciFi characters: Belsomra, Xeralto, Lunestra, Paroxetine, Oteza, Liness, Chantix, Humira…

Brain: I have this totally rad idea.
Me: Go to sleep, Brain.
Brain: No. It’ll be awesome. See, there’s this scene. Remember that gymnast who goes to work for Chasin’ Tail in one of the Nightrider books?
Me: Brain, I’m warning you…
Brain: Seriously, this is awesomesauce. See, she does this lap dance and gets hurt and…
Me: If I get up and write this down, will you shut up?”
Brain: Sure.

I wrote eight pages longhand. At three in the morning. Which turned into 5K words when I transcribed the scene and added to it. And have the plot line for Hollywood’s book. *headdesk*

Brain: You busy?
Me: Yeah.
Brain: *poke-poke*
Me: Busy, Brain. Go away.
Brain: You know that song?
Me: What song?
Brain: It has fire in it. And sleepwalking. And…stuff.
Me: And?
Brain: *whispers in my ear* Totally perfect, right?
Me: *sigh* … *writes climax scene for last book of Penumbra Papers*

Brain: Uhm…
Me: No.
Brain: But…
Me: What part of no don’t you understand.
Brain: *pouts* Fine. I won’t talk about peanut butter pie.
Me: I don’t like peanut butter.
Brain: What?!?! How can that be? How can you not love peanut butter. And pie. Because peanut butter pie!
Me: If I find you a recipe, will you shut up?
Brain: Maybe…
Me: CLICK HERE And if you want that pecan crust, you need to click the link in the comments. Just sayin’…

Who else has a brain like mine? Better yet, who wants one? I’ll trade!

  1. LOL – if my brain came up with awesome ideas as I was trying to sleep, you better bet I’d be up writing them down. My brain mostly runs through dialogue when I lie down. 😉

    LOL you crack me up. Yeah, it’s usually from watching a movie (that I want to fix some part of) or hearing a song, or something I’ve seen that just won’t let me go. LOL on the peanut butter pie. I might just have to make that today…
