Happy Tuesday and Welcome my new blog day at the bunkhouse! Actually, I'd rather be bunking in. Boy how I hate the week it takes to adjust when we set the clocks back (or ahead too, for that matter!) I'm a morning person for sure but when I spring out of bed at 4am like a jackrabbit on crack....that's just wrong!! No one should be wide awake at 4am!
So I toss and turn, try to relax and fall back to sleep. But I never really do. So over the next hour I peek at the clock to find that every time I do so, only 4 mins have passed. ugh! Are you kidding me?? Of course by the time I finally do fall back into a nice sleep, I hear my daughter get up to get ready for school, the dog thumping through the halls after her, and realize I've overslept!!! I should have just bit the bullet and gotten up early. I could have written a couple pages - although my dear hubby would have said "go down on the treadmill and get your workout in if you're that awake."
No one should be exercising at 4am either.
So I'm declaring right now, to use this time change to my benefit until the body/mind decide to accept it. I love the quiet of the house in the morning anyway, so why not start to channel my creativity over a cup of coffee? Every little bit helps us get closer to "the end", right? I've begun to realize the importance of using the small bits of time I get for writing (like I used to do, waaay back when!) because a good, solid chunk of quality time isn't a reality right now. It all adds it.
Anyone else "feeling the change"? What are you doing in the wee hours of the morning? Or are you lucky enough to go back to sleep? Any late night writers having the opposite problem?
