Today mainly relates to writing binges, and since my binges invariably happen during the night, I took a few liberties with the title. What can I say? I’m a night owl. Although it’s fair to say that many a creative soul would fall into the same category. Either that or an early bird – those up at the crack of dawn with a spring in their step and a muse on their back! In either case there are less people around to interrupt!
I’m not a particularly disciplined writer. Perhaps if I followed a schedule, I’d get more done. But I’ve found that I’m more productive when I follow my inner clock, the rebellious gatekeeper controlling my creativity. It flows without restraint…perhaps because there aren’t any!
Still, it’s not entirely healthy when I give in to the urge and binge on words throughout the night. It’s like a writing delirium, when I can’t stop because the ideas are coming so thick and fast I can’t keep up. It’s almost like something takes over. When the fog finally clears, and I’m hovering somewhere between elation and exhaustion, I’m surprised at the results on the page.
Thanks for stopping by
