Friday Freewrite: Falling asleep

What do you think about when you can’t fall asleep?

E. B. White’s character Sam in Trumpet of the Swan wrote in his diary each night before bed. He always ended with a question so that he had something to think about as he went to sleep. I love his last question in the book:

“What does crepuscular mean?”

How do you help yourself fall asleep? Do you think asking yourself a question would be a good idea? Why or why not?
