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