Writing with Insomnia

It's 2:40 am and I'm up. You gotta love indigestion. Even so, the Chick-Fil-A I had for supper was worth it. 

Anyway, it's given me an opportunity to visit some beloved blogs (I haven't been to many blogs all summer) and to do some writing prompts.

Here's a short one I did over at Daily Writing Practice.

Sept. 6th prompt - Use the first line of a song (give credit).

Here's mine (I used "Miriam" by Norah Jones):

"Miriam, that's such a pretty name."

The words sounded like thick honey coming out of Miss Andreus's mouth. She walked over and placed a beautiful hand on my shoulder. All my anxiety fell away as I looked up at her smiling face.

I was going to like my new classroom.


  1. That's lovely. I can see the scene. Strangely this post is very similar to the one I posted up just now. Insomnia and song lyrics. There must be something in the air.

    1. Rosalind,
      I visited your blog and I think we had a connection last night. LOL!

  2. Insomnia can be helpful sometimes, lol!

    I've tagged you in a little award over at my blog. :)

    1. Krista, Yes, sometimes, but I sure don't want to make it a habit!

      Thank you, I'll be over soon!

  3. I agree with Krista--insomnia can be helpful sometimes--and productive for writers! LOL Hope tonight is restful for you, Dawn!


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
