Earlier (before I discovered the joys of blogging), lying awake at night was boring. The sleepless mind travel in all directions, usually halting at thoughts one does not want to spend time on. What can you think about that will take your mind off not being able to sleep?
Nighttime wakefulness in distant lands is caused by jet lag: your body will not sleep. This form of Nature's torture is what led me to think up stories, which I later wrote as dodgy novels. Tales of fantasy took my mind off things that I did not want to think about and served as entertainment.
Now, I think about the tosh I can use to fill this blog (this bit came to mind in the middle of last night). The problem is that I must get out of bed and write down my thoughts or they will be lost the next day...
