What keeps you from getting a good nights sleep?

What keeps you from getting a good nights sleep?

A Story by Darien

I got this book from target with 300 writing prompts. Every now and then I try to knock one out. The title of the story is the prompt from the book

Solitude. I love it. It’s also hard to come by living with a big family and all. But I love being alone with my thoughts (most times). At this moment I can hear the tics of three different clocks in three different rooms. They are all out of sync and sound like they are having a conversation. The refrigerator tries to hum over them. Most of the time I’m up thinking about life. Thinking about how I got to this moment in time. About how high school was such a blur. About that girl I used to like. Trying to to remember why I liked her. When I’m not reminiscing, I’m overthinking the future. When will I get married? Will I even get married? What’s APR? How does a mortgage work? When will I finally grow a beard? When the questions start to get unusual then I know that sleep is on its way. We wrestle, but it wins. It always seems to win.

Author's Note

Gimme a break. This is my first time. Also, I probably, most likely, definitely don't know how to use commas.

If you don't really care to review, feel free comment your own little journal for the prompt in the title. Something short and sweet. Thanks for reading!

I enjoyed reading it. What keeps me up at night is I work the graveyard shift.
