Turning into a Sleep Writing Zombie When You’re Tired and Have a Deadline.

Fun fact about me:  I can’t sleep.

Too many thoughts and worries, my brain won’t shut off.


Today, I had a deadline to make, a piece of 2,000 words, was due.

While I was typing, my eyes were closing. Think I was half unconscious.

But with zombie like movements, I kept writing.

Feel like I’m back in college. Thank goodness for spell check.

How I was able to write coherent sentences

while my brain was absolute mush, is beyond me.


And lately, I’ve been fiction writing in the wee hours of the night.

between 11:00 pm to 2 am. When vampires are awake.

It’s like my characters only want to bother me when I should be asleep.

The curse of being a night writer, I suppose.


On the bright side,

NaNoWriMo Merch for 2018 is up and I’m in love with all of it.

Everything looks awesome, especially that hoodie.

Which reminds me…. I have to start getting ready for NaNoWriMo!

Uh oh! Let me sleep on it!

Has this ever happen to you guys? When you need to get writing done, but you’re sleep deprived and have no energy. Ever turn into a sleep writing zombie?

Treat yourself this weekend. Take a break and get comfortable. You earned it.

Write with Heart,

Lady Jabberwocky

  1. It happens to the best of us! I’ve had the desire to write all week but between work and home life, by the time I finally sit down to put pen to paper I’m mentally exhausted and just want to nap. I’m hoping my routine changes also. I guess we shall see. Good luck and get some rest. 😊
