I had difficulties to fall asleep before, now i'm making up a story and I usually fall asleep.
It's like doing VILD ( http://www.ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=42072 ) .
You should give it a try.

Its important to balance staying up late until you are tried with going to sleep at a reasonable bed time based on when you need to get up.
What works really well which I will post as a technique is to take inhalations through the left nostril before sleeping. Between 5 and 40. This activates the half of our brain associated with sleep and resting. It's done by gently shutting the right nostril by pressing it with a finger. I told even someone who never tried it before about it and she said it worked great. Its not imagination.

Being able to quickly fall asleep makes WBTB easier, so trying to shorten this long time to fall asleep would be beneficial.

Here's a guide on this subject that might do the trick for you:
