The Writing Moment

His wife commented on his recent restlessness at night. He’d been watching television until he fell asleep and she wondered why.

“Well, I start writing, editing, and plotting in my head. Once I do that, it takes hours to fall asleep. The TV distracts me from doing that.”

She answered, “I thought you’d fall asleep easily if you’re writing in your head. Daydreaming always makes me fall asleep.”

He responded with a hard stare. “Writing is not daydreaming.”
