Are Writing And Sleep Incompatible?

I just finished my new novel’s 1st draft, 300 pages!!  I thought I’d get some rest at last. Revisions aren’t that exciting, are they? Perhaps I’ve lost my mind or was that something just reserved for kids? Here I am up at Four in the Morning, excited about revising! I know how it starts, I know how it ends….. can repainting road signs be that exciting? I think however it’s the inspiration of friends I’ve found at Indie Writers…..

There is an addiction to the creative experience that is inspired by nothing but others. What is it I want to make certain I have done? What is to exciting to wait? I’m inspired by those  in my writing group, who I hope like me can’t wait for enough light to again be up and write!  This is how my sleep is undone…

  • Tease curiosity with Alvin Wander’s amazing technique for creating character
  • Create a culture bound to a knife held by a vulture as Walt Kuhlman does
  • Add some subtle but poetic phrases as inspired by Judy Moskowitz (or Billy Collins)
  • Add some heartfelt prose with the gentleness Evelyn Ross does
  • Every day I remember to read someone new as I learned from Gerrie Beck
  • Shine the hot spot light of stage like presence on my character’s speech- Isaac Asimov (I know he’s been here while I was asleep)
  • Or read something magical as from  John C Mannone?  (as close as the internet)
  • A a page of cruelty and violence in a very special way, inspired by Keith Darrel
  • What price can you put on such a thrill?  Authors who have have Disneyland In their backyard!  Maybe I’ve added too, by just catching fire?

Smashwords: Amazon Lowers Kindle Unlimited Payouts

As an eye doctor who has been financially devalued by the corporatocracy that has taken control of America, I warned authors years ago that joining Amazon’s Kindle Prime (KDP).  The concept was used to destroy medical care in

America.  Over the last 10 years most medical doctors were put out of business and made into employees of big corporate medicine.  This is the goal of e-book publishers, Amazon and others that would like to emulate them by using the KDP concept.
