I HAVE BEEN OVERSLEEPING TO A RIDICULOUS DEGREE. I haven't dared count hours but it's a good 12 or 14 or even 16 out of every 24.
Yesterday I went to bed three times, I was so exhausted. And I slept deeply every time. I never ever lie in bed wide awake. I only ever can't sleep when I'm hypomanic (in an elevated mood) and in that state if you can't sleep you just don't bother wasting time going to bed anyhow.
Usually excessive sleep is a sign of depression in me but I don't feel too bad (surprisingly).
I have been trying to plot out what the rest of my life might entail and what I can do with it and the idea of writing a novel has come back yet again. There are several embryonic ideas whirring about my brain but I just don't know what to go for. I WAS going to give children's writing a bash and did indeed have concepts for a handful of books. But I just could not summon up enough fire in my belly to proceed. In my experience you NEED inspiration to start any literary project. What you cannot do though, is rely on inspiration striking every day once the writing has got started: then you have to write come hell or high water, else the book'll never get finished.
Anyway I shall give the novel-writing some more thought. There aren't many good books about mental illness, so I thought maybe I'd write something about that.
Well I had better go. Am I the only one to be completely fazed by Blogger's new look. It's gonna take ages to get used to. Have a cheery week everyone. What's left of it.
PS my totally unwanted, morally degenerate pig of a housemate has been KICKED OUT AND THE LOCKS CHANGED today I'm so happy happy happy. This person was such scum and I was so upset about goings on I couldn't even bring myself to post about them. HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN. PLEASE.
And don't quote that other proverb "better the devil you know"... it would be hard to out-scumbag the dregs of humanity this person called friends, who littered our house having loud telephone conversations about their legal and other problems. Not to mention the other chaos they caused ...
THE BITCH IS GONE. HA HA HA!
