5 Ways to Stay Awake

My Top 5 Ways to Stay Awake:

5. Think about breakfast - cereal or fruit salad?
4. Do some crunches. Nothing like getting blood to your head to stay up at night.
3. Revel in the quiet of the night. It was raining last night, and I just love thunderstorms at night. There's the sense of the world being cleansed after a long day of ugliness, turmoil and heartache.
2. One word: music. Listen to some Circus by Britney, or Single Ladies by Beyonce.
1. Lie on your back with your eyes shut and imagine scenarios that can take place in your story. It works for me everytime I'm stuck. Not only did I fill up four pages worth of ideas last night, it kept me up for three hours.
