The Voices in My Head

I should have known not to stay up so late revising my submission for this Tuesday's Slushbuster meeting. 

I slept restlessly after 5am- lots of scattered images that were somewhere between dreams and thinking about the day. Anyway, I rolled over at some point and realized that I was listening to two of my novel's characters talking to each other. Pretty cool- sort of like that moment when you dream in another language. Then I muzzily wondered if I should wake up and write the conversation down. 

I thought about it, then realized the conversation was pretty mundane- the equivalent of discussing the shopping list. So I went back to sort-of sleep. But really ... writing and editing before I actually wake up?

It's been that kind of day.

I'm pretty sure I had a brilliant idea for a blog post in the middle of the night last night. I was all set to write it up this morning but drew a blank. Hence, the book festival post!

I had a dream last night where an ex-boyfriend asked me to marry him with a quote from Shakespeare. I woke up desperately trying to remember which play it was from, then seconds later, what the quote was, and in another instant...which ex-boyfriend was that?
