Words in my head

Normally, I wake up with words in my head. As if my inner author pulls out her typewriter late at night when I'm sleeping and pounds away.

Back when I wrote fiction, it was usually dialogue. Scenes between characters.

Now, more often it is some thought I'm trying to piece together. Or threads of things where I suspect some vague correlation.

The amazing thing is that once I write them, they stop haunting me. They leave my head in satisfying silence.

Then, I can start my day.
