Write in the Night and Fight the Light

Because the Night

“Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?” –The Daily Post

What an interesting title…. Because the night? Well whether the night is good or bad I can never be as sad as the sight of light.

Day light has never been as good to me as night. When I was a child it meant waking up to get to school. When I grew up it was school and work and now it is just plain old work. Even when I had to work the evening shifts the freedom came from the sign of night. Nor did homework dwindle amongst the light.

For me the early bird who catches the worm has only one thing against me: A lower energy bill.

My best writing comes out in the evening to four in the morning. If writing was a full-time job and I don’t have a future family to schedule around I would sleep in for most of the day and awaken against the fall of night.
