S is for Sleeping in

I really love sleep, but I need to stop it. I can (I believe) match writing productivity to when I wake in the morning (and when I started with my Bullet Journal). Those were short stories, but still, I nailed it. I don’t want to believe I burned out on that speed, but maybe I did. I won’t really know until I get my routine back.

Monday. Because this weekend I slept in both Saturday and today until nearly noon, and it was fabulous. But yeah, it needs to stop.

Yesterday I wrote 207 fiction words, and 366 words total. I also watched Unstoppable, a fantastic movie about a runaway train with Chris Pine and Denzel Washington and Rosario Dawson, which was not conducive to words.

Today there is still usual Sunday tasks on the schedule like trash, shopping, etc, but there are several hours to get that done. In the meantime, there’s some writing and reading that needs to happen. If you’ll excuse me.

  1. I will happily take all the hours you do not sleep for myself. I think I write better when I’ve slept more. πŸ™‚

    Yay words and watching Denzel!

    1. It will just mean giving up evening hours for morning hours. I write best when I do it first, and without interruptions. The interruptions wake up at 6 a.m., so I’ll just have to go to bed earlier. πŸ™‚

      1. Glad you have a plan.

        For me, I have this weird schedule where I stay up late because that’s the only time I get to hang out with my husband, and then I get up early because the kids have to go to school. I’m sure this will all sort itself out in ten years or so when the girl is off to college, but I’m in no rush!

        1. And for me, my entire family hits the hay at 9 p.m. except for me, so going to bed earlier isn’t going to sacrifice any family time.

          But you’re quite right, it will sort itself out once the youth have created their own nests elsewhere. I hope you get enough sleep in the meantime, even if I can’t share mine. πŸ™‚

    1. We need sleep banks. I feel like I’ve had a conversation like this before. You take your extra sleep you’re not happy with and pass it along to someone who would appreciate it. <3

      I used to listen to "Unstoppable" in the car on the way to work, so I nearly have the dialogue memorized. πŸ™‚
