One good thing about being unable to sleep is that I got some editing done on the horror story. Things were happening too fast. I need to slow down the action while maintaining the tension. With all that time staring at the ceiling in was able to put some ideas together.
I can't say I like this story - it's psychologically disturbing - but I do like how it has revitalized my writing. I'm back in a schedule filled with enthusiasm for finding the exact turn of phrase. Painting with words using broad brushes and fine details as the story warrants.
