Late night inspiration - Circle Casting

Why is it that inspiration seems to strike most often right before I fall asleep? You know, it's that moment when you're lying in bed, all snug and cozy, just about to drift off and BLAMMO, you're struck by creative genius. This is what happened to me a couple of nights ago. I'd already stayed up later than I should have and was having trouble falling asleep when words starting running through my head. I'd been starting to drift off and knew that I had to get up and write.

So, at 2am I found myself sitting on the living room couch, scribbling furiously. I've been wanting to write a circle casting for a while now (it's on my list of goals) and that's what was running through my mind. I got a good first draft of it down before heading back to bed. I did some tweaking yesterday and I think I've got something that I'm quite pleased with now. I even tried it out in the living room to see how it flowed. The length seems to be just about right and I like the way it sounds when I speak it out loud.

I'm pretty excited to have it finished because I find it really helps me focus my thoughts (as I knew it would). I can't wait to try it out with friends!
