    Event hosted by Barbara Worton, Author

    Do you have a hard time falling asleep—just too many things ping-ponging through your head? Author Barbara Worton has a remedy. She calls it sleepwriting. At bedtime, she picks up a pad and pen, and writes down the first words and ideas that pop into her her head. She keeps writing for three pages to get down the story her relaxing mind wants to tell and to slip into a deep restorative sleep.

    Bedtime Stories: The short, long and tall tales of a sleepwriter is a collection of tales pulled from the stacks of sleepwriting journals Worton has penned over the years. This delightful book is also a how-to, with sleepwriting instructions for readers.

    Literary pundits call Bedtime Stories fast fiction, flash fiction, short, short fiction or even postcard fiction. Genre labels don’t seem to matter for Worton’s readers.

    “I enjoyed every delicious page of Barbara Worton’s book, BedtimeStories, but also found it deeply disturbing, since she writes better half-asleep than I do fully awake.” —Ed Begley, Jr., Actor and activist
