My brain seems to have taken the crazy juice. So I keep waking up every five minutes. Cue Rick banging his head against the mattress moaning, ‘Want. Sleep’. Which is, you know, hilarious. But still, not so good. Plus, it’s not like I don’t sympathise

Me: Being able to sleep on the third day only after drugging my brain into insensibilty is…
Rick: Your brain was already insensible.
Me: Thanks.

Seriously, what happened to that sleep thing I’ve heard about?

Google Calender invite: Getting some sleep? My place. Anywhere at all. MY HEAD. Going? Yes/Maybe/NO

At least I’m writing. Although I had forgotten what it was like to have absolutely no idea what I was doing. It’s been a long time since I was writing something so very early in the concept stage.

So my characters went and got drunk in a pub. And I thought… wait, I’ve been here before. That’s totally what I did with Path when I was trying to figure out the plot. Apparently my go-to creation method is to get my characters drunk to distract them while I figure out what the hell is going on.

At least this time there’s PLOT RELEVANCE associated with the drinking. And throwing up on someone’s shoes is a great way to break the ice…
