I enjoy writing while the world’s asleep all around me. And since I’ve always been a morning person, that tends to be when I write. The early mornings.
My internal clock’s gotten very happy about this, and I suppose it’s now trying to please me by waking me as early as my mind can handle it. Or maybe my own commitment level is such that I can’t allow a simple detail like “nighttime” to get in the way of my arising as soon as I sense myself anywhere near the tattered edges of wakefulness.
And so it is that this week twice already I’ve awoken around 2:10am, bright-eyed and writerly.
Here’s hoping I pick up the ability to nap. It’s not one of my current skills…
