Hazy brilliant thoughts

You know those thoughts you get when you wake up in the middle of the night?  The hazy, not fully conscious thoughts that float in and out of your mind?  In the moments between sleep, waking, and sleep again, the brain invents all sorts of brilliance.  At the time, you feel like it’s the stuff great novels are made of, novels that would make Virginia Woolf or James Joyce proud.

Occasionally, your barely conscious self has enough sense to grab a pen and scribble down your mental masterpiece before it sets sail upon the ocean of your subconscious.  A few days later, you stumble upon the post-it note where it made its home on the floor of your bedroom.

It reads: “There are holes in the floor of her bathroom.”

That’s when you give yourself a massive facepalm and wonder why you even bother.

    I think you should turn that line into a short story 🙂

      I definitely should… especially since I’ve gotta write some innovative pieces ASAP for my class.
