Random thoughts on sleep deprivation

Like so many people, I’ve been suffering from insomnia lately. Between the two jobs I can alternate between day and night shifts frequently which makes having a normal sleep cycle pretty difficult. I work two jobs by choice because the hospital helps me keep my skills up to date and the State allows me to put bad people in jail. It's a good mix.

My problem is that when I’m exhausted, I’m unable to focus on ANYTHING. I'm awake, but I'm also useless. When I’m reading stories so many of them say something like, "I was unable to sleep and I decided to write this little drabble". And, of course, the drabble is amazing. So what am I missing here?

Why do I turn into a drooling waste of space when I’m tired and everyone else is able to scribe wonderful bits of lovely fiction?

I must learn this talent and use it to my advantage.

I'm off to stare at the television and drool on myself. :D

I dunno, but when you find out, please share, because I'm with you on the whole exhausted=zilch creativity !

You'll be the first to know, fred! :) We could probably market the secret and retire early.
