Insomnia sucks...

...big time. It's now after 1am and I'm not remotely tired. Stupid body clock. I didn't even sleep in that late this morning, and I didn't take a nap, and I still can't get to sleep. This is what happened last night, too. Didn't fall asleep until 4am. Not even the Nyquil that I took at 1am helped. I'm trying Nyquil again, but I'm not holding my breath.

The worst part about it is that my brain is nowhere near sharp enough to get any quality writing done. I've been doing little things all night to keep myself busy---updated the recs page on my website, went through and cleaned up my list of stories to nominate for awards, did some reading and found some new work to nominate. I even wrote about 5 or 6 drabbles for the babystepsverse that I then decided sucked and deleted before posting. I'm about to start working on the research for my next fic in an attempt to burn my brain out enough so that it will sleep. Craig volunteered to try tiring me out in a more fun way, but that didn't work last night either so I passed because he was dead on his feet and was only offering because he felt bad for me. At least one of us should get a good night's sleep...
