    I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark. – Henry David Thoreau

    That’s funny – as it happens I was lying awake last night unable to sleep, and thought of some new scenes for my novel that seemed fantastic to me. I wanted to write them down but didn’t want to get up and get pen and paper and put the light on and wake up my girlfriend. So I did nothing, went to sleep eventually, and today all those scenes are gone except for a few fragments that don’t really seem that good after all. Wish I’d written the original ones down – perhaps I should take Thoreau’s advice from now on!
