Night Write: switching from morning writing to night writing

Today I made a tremendous leap back in time. Up till about a year ago I always wrote in the evening. But, as my schedule grew more hectic (work and raising a pre-school child) I found myself falling asleep at the keyboard. So, I shifted gears to morning writes. I loved it. No worries and I felt more productive. (Although close examination of my word counts shows I wrote more at night than in the day time).

However, I seem to have paid the price in lack of sleep. A three month bout of flu in the spring. Currently, I’ve been battling something equally wicked for the past month. Clearly my body’s worn out. I had to give up the morning writes, but I couldn’t abandon writing. That’d be like cutting off an arm. So, here I am again, clicking away at night. At least I’m not snoozing on my keyboard. I’ll get more sleep and see how it goes.

  1. Glad to hear that someone besides me has issues finding the optimum time of the day to write. Like you, I tend to be more of a night owl, but Twitter has imposed itself into that time. So, I tried the daytime, too. Same problem. Now, I’m thinking that I’m going to have to seriously cut back. Anyway, I’ll be sending you good vibes.
