What is it about being a writer that keeps us up at all hours of the night? I often find myself wide awake well after midnight, and whenever I go on Twitter it'll more than likely be filled with my writer friends having the same problem. Sometimes I attempt to go to bed at a decent hour, but all I do is stare up at the ceiling thinking about how I'm going to kill off a character, or if I'll get that long awaited email in the morning. I'm pretty sure we all have those problems.
I think most of you lovely people stay awake because the kids have gone to bed and it's your time to write. Others seem to get those creative juices flowing in the early hours of morning. Me? I suppose it all depends on where I'm at in my manuscript or if I'm brainstorming. Most of the time my mind is filled with all the different possibilities of where my writing will take me. Call it a daydream or whatnot.
It's fun to imagine where I'll be in a year. Heck! Even a month from now. So much has happened from the time I decided to plop myself in front of the computer and actually write something. That was a year ago last month, I do believe. I've learned so much, and I can't help but imagine what else could possibly happen.
There are about a million things that keep me awake at night, but I'm glad I have all of you to keep me company. Being an insomniac isn't too shabby when I've got a ton of Twitter friends to chat with.
What about you? Do you do most of your writing at night? What keeps you up?
