Lexi, the blog is all yours!!!
I know a lot of people who deal with some form of insomnia. I’m the kind who gets to sleep fairly quickly. Sometimes I think I’m the little old lady of the house because I’ll be asleep by 10 pm.
Unfortunately, I’m awake again at 3 am. On the dot. Like clockwork.
But Lexi, some people only need about five hours of sleep a night. Don’t worry about it. Yeah, I’m not that person. I need like ten hours, but I seem to take my ten hours in shifts. I’ll be up from three in the morning to four or even five before I find my groove and sleep again until eight or sometimes nine.
The truth is I’m a morning person. I love to work in the quiet early hours of morning while everyone else is sleeping. I can’t do that when I’m up for hours and need to catch up on sleep. I wake up disappointed that my quiet morning writing session has been slept through.
So what does any of this have to do with audio books? Well, I’d tried everything else. The last thing I was going to do was get up at three in the morning and try to work. I love my house, but everything is creepy at three in the morning and I’ve watched way too many bad horror films to not think I’ll be murdered every time the house creaks. I tried my version of counting sheep, which is to mentally organize all my characters in my head alphabetically. I tried to find a soothing rhythm to my husband’s snoring. Then he got a C-pap because I also had to make sure he was alive. White noise machine. Check. Chill the room so I’m an ice cube because that helps me sleep. Check.
And then I did my first audio book. I was paying for it independently so I had to listen to it. Since I didn’t have anything else to do at three in the morning, I put some earbuds in and told myself that at least I would get some work done.
Maybe it was because I knew the story. Maybe it was the soothing tone of the narrator, but I did not make it through the first chapter. I fell back to sleep and woke at six in the morning, still listening to the story play out.
Since then I’ve become an audio junkie. I listen to audio books in the car, while I walk the dogs, while I get ready to go out. I’ve bought everything from Harry Potter to Linda Howard to Stephen King to Carly Phillips.
And sometimes, deep in the night when I’m the only person in the world who can’t sleep, I turn on a story and I’m not alone anymore.
