Those of you who stayed up too late last night — or who found themselves irritatingly alert in the early-morning hours, thanks to your body’s processing of alcohol — may want to hear of a silver lining.

Namely, many of literature’s greats suffered from poor sleep patterns, so perhaps there’s a link between creativity and insomnia.

Marina Benjamin, author of a memoir titled Insomnia, examines how the likes of Emily Brontë, Vladimir Nabokov, and Marcel Proust viewed their exhaustion in the Guardian.

We hope you can find some inspiration in their productivity!
