It's weird. When I have no time, when I'm working all day and night, I still have to take time to unwind.
Even if I've been working for 15 hours and I'm exhausted, I can't just go to bed. I have to relax first. You'd think the sleep would be welcome, and it is, but ... I just can't get myself there until I do the blog routine and the bath routine.
Even though it means two hours less sleep.
Are you like that?
And here's another question: have you ever been too tired to sleep? Have you ever been unable to keep your eyes open, but when you go to bed, you can't fall asleep?
I've been spending lots of time getting my studio website updated, during my free seconds. It's that time of year. After a great conference, I have lots of new ideas to make teaching more fun for me and the students.
I'm not a one-thing person, though. I miss writing. I need to do two things to maintain balance. I do get more done when I focus on one thing, but only because I'll obsessively focus on it for days, and even skip sleep. That's not healthy. I need two things so I don't go nuts.
What about you?
When you don't have time to write, how do you handle it? Do you go inwardly mad? What is it about writing that makes it so addictive like that?
I miss my worlds, too. You know? I miss my characters.
I think I'm up too late.
Have you ever not wanted to go on a vacation because you didn't want to miss a writing day?
Just curious. I can't wait until Monday is here! Must. Write.
