I'll tell you a secret. When I can't sleep at night, I don't count sheep.
I name them.
I start with "A" and do a male and female name: Alfred, Albina; then "B": Barney, Bonnie and so on... Good practice for thinking up unusual names for my characters.
Last night, at about 2 a.m. I decided I'd had enough of naming sheep - I'm beginning to run out of names, and I don't like to repeat. So I imagined a new game - naming musical acts. What makes this a challenge? They can only be one word (excepting "The" and "A"). Still, I got stuck on some letters. Anyone want to help (I will add any contributions into the blog in red)?
Please note that I started off with a bang, and then began to fizzle... could be that I finally started getting drowsy.
