Creative Bliss Day 15: Inspiration as You Drift to Sleep

When you head for bed tonight, have pad and pen nearby. As you start drifting off, try staying alert for ideas that emerge in the hypnagogic arena — that drowsy period when you’re not quite asleep, but not fully awake. In this fertile field, your imagination runs wild.

Repeat the process the next morning by setting your alarm five minutes early. Just stay in bed and let your mind wander. Capture ideas on paper.
