Nap your way to Fame and Fortune as a Writer.

The cornerstone of all good writing is the nap.

Don't let those nap naysayers try to convince you that naps are for children. That somehow it is lazy and unnatural for you to nap. Don't allow them to make an outcast of you. They are only jealous of your ubernap capabilities.

Yes, I say verily to you (and somewhat unverily) that you must take hold of your inner napper. You must celebrate especially the "power" nap (20 minutes). In that time you will descend into your subconsciousness and emerge from that dank, creative cave like a writing god (or goddess or demigod or mime, depending on your background) and return to your writing desks in the perfect frame of mind. You will be refreshed. More attractive! And more powerful! All the answers to all the plot and subplot and characterization problems will be solved by a nap (this works 100% of the time, though results vary by +-101).

Sons and daughters of nap! A day may come when the courage of those who nap fails, when we forsake our naps and break all bonds of napping fellowship, but it is not this day! This day we nap! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you nap!

If I were as rich and famous as you, I would have a hammock too and then I could nap.

Man, I hope I don't come out a mime. :)

The weekend nap is the provenance of dads, I've decided.

Happy Weekend! :)

Like all good things you can buy the hammock at Canadian Tire. Cheap! And don't go into your subconscious mime. Just don't go there...
