Anyone ever tried writing while asleep?

When I was younger I used to try to tap into a "psychic" energy that I was told existed in everyone. I often would fall asleep with my journal on my leg and my hand in a writing position.
Never did I awake to anything but scribbles however I am still a bit interested. So has anyone ever written any messages in their sleep?

I may have done a few things in my sleep (Honest i was sleep walking) but i have never written anything.
There are cases of people going to visit friends/relatives/workplaces while technically asleep.
I have never heard of sleep writing though.
I would avoid telling anyone you may live with about this, you may wake up with a novel.

Try taping a pen to your fingers or fashion something like a glove with a pen attached to it, think of a way to keep your hand from moving away from the writing pad as you sleep, and you might write something. It might be risky though, could poke out an eye

Might be a stupid idea, I've never tried it. I have tried to sleep with a notepad and pen, however I ended up scattering the things over and under my bed.

I don't sleepwalk, so I don't know if my hand would move like I was writing if I wrote something in my dreams, I might just move it around like a dog or something.

Interesting idea though... maybe if you're lucky you can write out the winning lottery tickets

I would be scared to fall asleep with a pen in my hand. What if my eye itches when I'm half asleep ???

anyway, although you may not be able to write while you sleep, you certainly can read, or learn. Edgar Cayce used to fall asleep on top of books when he was younger, and he would absorb the information somehow.

I too get lessons sometimes, on whatever I'm thinking about before I go to sleep.

I'm going to try lying on my stomach with my head laying away from the notebook. Doubt that I could write numbers, but maybe this may help me remember my dreams.
Who knows I'm going to try it tonight although not with tape.

My insparation appears exactly at night, as I can very much do at night, even if I fall asleep. I have a bunch of instruments that help me be awake when needed. I think this is normal, because everyone has their own peculiarities of showing talent. I can even hold the weight in my hand so that it falls, and I woke up and caught my thoughts for writing. That's cool.

sleep sex ok, sleep writing not so much.

I have texted in my sleep. Well... a few times while coming out of a fitful half-sleep, resulting in telling someone exactly how I feel.

Yeah... a phone next to the bed is not always such a good idea.

A friend of mine used to stay up way too late chatting with me, and would sometimes fall asleep at the keyboard. A few times, she typed things she has no recollection of typing. They never made any sense. Words, maybe, but assembled in no order, out of context for the discussion, and often the sentences simply wouldn't end. Now, she's not the mystical type, but the result was what I would expect from sleep writing. The same kind of things that come out of your mouth when you sleep talk. Babble.

This is potentially true.

If you "prime" yourself in such a resting position, and perhaps make a direct suggestion to yourself to be affected by a particular state (say, some archetypal mode of being) than perhaps while asleep your physical body could be "used" by the archetypal dynamic within you.
