Writing Prompt: To sleep, perchance to dream

I can barely keep my eyes open. There are tears making their way from my eyes, across the bridge of my nose, eventually landing on my chin. I yawn, over and over and it makes my eyes water. The screen is a blur and the cat, asleep at my feet is giving me ideas.  I keep trying to recall a dream I had the other night and it frustrates me to know that I can try as hard as I wish, but I won’t have the dream again to see how the story will end. It ended with daybreak when the sun hit my face.

Just the same, I’m going to try to sleep now and when I wake, I plan to write the first thoughts that spring to mind.

Have a go at this, leave a notebook by the bed and write for five minutes about the first thing that enters your head, it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t make sense, just have fun.

Good night. 🙂
