Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a 78-word piece for you today, which mo9st anyone has time to read. Thanks to Sammi Cox for hosting the Weekend Writing Prompt. Thanks for coming, and I’d love to respond to your comments.

The Prompt:

“Somnambulist” in 78 words

The Inspiration

This week’s Weekend Writing Prompt on Sammi Scribbles blog immediately made me think about saying, “She sleeps like a baby.” I heard this last week about an infant who slept GREAT the first couple nights, then reverted to the usual that we expect of infants. And that inspired my contribution to the challenge.

If you’d like to try your hand at writing a short piece, please join in the fun! Directions are on her blog, but the idea is you write your story, post it to your own blog/website, then put the link in the COMMENTS section on the prompt post. Have fun!

The Story: To Sleep Like a Baby

Word count: 78

So, you think it would be great to sleep like a baby.


Although results may vary, most babies wake up crying, screaming, wet, and/or hungry.

Sound good?

Most sleep for short bursts then are wide awake. I often end up do that. It does NOT make for a good night’s sleep.

If you’re a somnambulist, I guess the good news is that you might do a little better sleeping like an infant, because you couldn’t walk yet!


Thanks for reading!
