Night Time - My Time




I know I've said it so many times, I read and write only at night, after Maya and the rest of the family go to sleep...I've been doing it for so long that I actually cannot sleep before 1 o'clock at night. I am lucky I don't have to wake up early in the morning, as Maya sleeps until aproximately 8 o'clock, but usually at 4, 5 in the afternoon I reach a zombie-like state and everything just goes fuzzy around the edges. Anyway, it is nothing that I good strong coffee cannot solve.
But lately...well, lately I am not alone anymore in my nightly activities. While I strain my brain writing, our cat Dasha defies my efforts by sleeping on my desk, or keyboard, or even on my notebook. And yes, I don't type directly on my PC. I have to write first, like, you know, pen on paper write. Call me old-fashioned, it is the only way inspiration flows...

That's fascinating that you have to have to write by hand first. I'm not sure I would be that dedicated!

Hemingway said that the typewriter “solidifies one's sentence before they are ready to print.”
