Night Owl

            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 best work I do is at night.

Unfortunately, by that point, I’m fast asleep – so the moment all goes to waste.

I get a good night’s rest. Does that count? 

When I do stay awake, I get a burst of creative energy that lasts for a meagre five seconds before petering off into a read-in of Charles Bukowski or Edgar Allan Poe (not entirely truthful, I watched Legally Blonde last night, but there are similarities in which people find themselves, or others — behind bricked walls). I’m not a morning person. Mornings don’t exist. I get up and I do things that are vaguely related to the things I’ll be doing later in the day and night that are actually conducive to my future. The mornings I always forget, the nights I remember.
