Noooooo.....My Writer's Block Turned into Writer's Insomnia

Okay I don't know if any of you writers out there have experienced this, but it tends to happen to me when I working hard on a book. When I try to go to sleep I lay down and scenes start playing out in my head. So much so that its impossible to sleep! Yesterday I woke up at 2:30 when Nicholai was fussing and got him back to sleep and laid down and could NOT go back to sleep. So I laid there until about 4 when I completely gave up and sat up and just started writing. I got a little done. Not nearly enough for someone who was awake most of the night though!!! I can't do this anymore. I've got a little munchkin who doesn't permit naps during the daytime. It worked fine when I was younger and with no one to tell me he wanted a snack or a cuddle every two minutes.

This morning I woke up at 2 again! Except this time it was Fippy, my crazy Lab, who did it. I swear! I love the dog! But he is NUTS!!! He is afraid of everything! This morning when he woke me up he was barking like someone was trying to get in the door. So I bolted out of bed and went into the living room and looked at the door. Nothing... Then something floated by my head... Nicky's balloon which barely had any helium left in it was kinda floating mid air and my poor nutso dog was convinced that it had come to kill the entire family!

So tonight I'm drinking about three cups of Sleepy Time Extra tea and going to bed. I'm telling Bryon that if Nicky wakes up he is in charge and I'm going to SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

At least I hope I am!

I completely know what you mean. I'm a film student and ever since I've started writing my first few screenplays, they have me up until at least 4am because I cannot sleep until I've gotten all the ideas from my mind onto paper.
