My Inner Dolphin
I've been trying to get in touch with my inner dolphin.
Did you know that dolphins sleep with only one eye closed? Also, they shut down only half their brain and they seem to choose which half.
Well, I've been working on a particular scene in book 2 but the realities of it seem just beyond my grasp. There's something missing and I can't quite put my finger on it. I know it'll come to me but I'd rather that be now than later.
Once in a while, I plant a problem in my thoughts at night and *poof* I have the answer in the morning. I've been trying to give this scene some thought right before bed so that my brain can mull it over while I sleep and *fix* it. That usually works great but not this time. This time I dreamt of swimming with dolphins. Strange. Perhaps I need more sleep. Think I can convince my kids to walk the miles and miles to school while mom goes back to bed so she can work?
Have you ever tried this method? Do answers magically pop into your head when you wake in the morning?
