Summer Writing Challenge: Day 16

Beautiful tropical beach with the word summer written on the san


When I write I like to curl up in my super comfortable La-Z-boy lounge chair with a pad of paper, a couple of extra sharp pencils, and a nice tall glass of ice water. There are two problems with this. 1.) The dog, my beloved cockapoo, Honey, has a Pavlovian response to my kicking back in the chair, and always needs to go out just as I settle in to write. 2.) The chair is so comfy that it often lulls me to sleep if I am not actively writing. That is to say if I’m thinking about what to write next… or noodling out dialog in my head… or trying to get character A to location X I have a tendency to get very drowsy.  Usually a gulp of ice water will bring me back in focus, but in honor of my La-Z-boy  I give you today’s writing / creative prompt: SLEEP.
