This week we’re discussing if we’re night owls or early birds. I suppose I would be a night owl. I love the twilight hours. My creativity really seems to come alive at the time as well. It always has. Back when I was in school I would stay up all night writing, its also when I stayed up until dawn reading.
I used to stay up until three or four in the morning writing and editing. I worked from home and set my own schedule. Now that I have a job outside of the home I can’t do that anymore. I have to be up around five in the morning to get ready for my day and get my kids ready for theirs. I simply can’t write during the day, I have tried multiple times but never end up with anything I would say is usable. I try to write at night but there are so many nights when I drift off to sleep by eight o’clock with my computer open and curser blinking which means my writing has really been put on the back burner.
I suppose while I consider myself a night owl as that is when my creative juices really begin to flow right now, I’m not night owl or an early bird. I’m more of a literary sloth.
