going to dark places in the dark

Haven't been needing much sleep lately, not sure why, and the sleep I have been getting has been strangely great, very deep and restful, without a touch of grogginess in the mornings. So when I didn't feel sleepy late last night, even after reading a few chapters, I happily gave into some twisted ideas for my novel that were popping into my mind and spent a couple hours jotting down demented new material for a section of the book that I haven't given much thought to in nearly a year. I ended up learning some really interesting things about two of my characters that go a long way towards understanding why they do what they do. Although I am at least a little worried that people in my life will like me less when they see the sort of dark things I can imagine.
