I am a night owl, always have been and probably always will be. It’s just something about the quiet night time hours that really assists in allowing your mind to wander and then settle upon those questions you have through out the day about where life is heading. Once my children are fast asleep I find it difficult to settle down to bed right away, usually I am awake past midnight writing blog posts or, as of recently, reading a good book.
Now that both of my sons actually sleep through the night on a more consistent basis I am able to indulge in some “me time” once they are asleep in their bunk bed. Late night is the time when my mind wanders and I start writing parts of my various manuscripts for my some day to be published novels and my creative side really comes out during such silent times. I just wish my creative night owl mind could wrap around one manuscript so that I didn’t have to weed through various novel topics and could truly finish one someday soon.
No matter what happens during the day, no matter how exhausted I am, once my kids are asleep this Mama gets a burst of energy that refuses to allow my mind to settle down to bed at a decent hour.
