This is going to be super-quick, because I was going to just post a short “no post today” notice, but decided to just turn it into a very small post.
It’s 1am on Weds. as I write this. Monday night/Tuesday morning, I was up until 3am finishing a scene…and not really because I wanted too, but because I needed too. It was a force of wills – and I won, but it took some wrangling. Discipline is a funny thing – the more you practice it, the less you need it…
Long story short, I can’t do 3 hrs of sleep twice in a row. And the scene I’m working on tonight isn’t finished – and will stay that way until I can get back to it tomorrow evening.
It’s not uncommon for me to give up sleep for words…but it always requires an extra cost the next day. Still, sometimes it’s worth it.
Other times (like tonight), it’s not.
I’m headed to bed – nearly 5 hours sleep will set me back to “good as new” for tomorrow. Even if the scene (a serial scene for one of my blogs) will probably be late.
When was the last time you denied yourself sleep in lieu of writing?
