The Early Bird Gets The Worm: Thanks, Can I Go Back To Bed Now???

Updated on November 18, 2015

I had to share this article with you all! Life teaches us to get up early for school, work, church etc. That we get the best eight hours of sleep before midnight, that early to bed and early to rise is what truly works. I believed all that malarkey for years until I saw this article today:

I’ve scolded myself for sleeping past noon plenty of times and calling myself lazy. On these days, I’ve noticed that I tend to write more now that I think about it. Maybe I should get graveyard hours from now on!

This has to do with creativity more than anything though. There are still many important things one must get up for. I’ve had to for the past two days now. I got to sleep in today as a reward for my effort, but maybe this is a lesson to not scold yourself anymore. If you can afford it, why not? Everyone needs to splurge a little every now and then. As writers, we all deserve creative freedom to choose. Whether we write in jeans and a t-shirt, yoga pants or in our pjs, it’s our choice ultimately. It doesn’t dictate what we write. It’s called freedom of expression for a reason.

It took me some time to write this article. Maybe it’s because I got up before noon...

How Writers Truly Look - Ernest Hemingway

Writers Have No Set Creativity Schedule

I have gotten up in the middle of the night on plenty occasions with a poem idea at 3:00 A.M. At times, I would stay up until 5:00 and then go back to sleep until noon or I'd just take a nap. I am actually more proud of myself now for doing that because I'm now a published writer.

I've tried websurfing best writing times and they suggest between 8:00 to 9:00 in the morning.

I wonder if that person writes fiction on a whim and not just because he has to? What makes someone a real writer? Is there really an answer? There is no right answer to be quite honest. We are writers by choice because we find it inspiring. I write to create, educate, inspire and share my own ideas and experiences. I feel I like in creativity if I write negatively about others just to gain recognition. I NEVER write for that reason. I write hoping others can relate to my experiences in more than one aspect.

People get pushed away in many ways. It should never stop you from writing. Never!

Writing Takes Determination!

      A poem, a song, a simple word or phrase can have so much power that it change the way you see things entirely. Writing is not only used to entertain, but to educate beyond anyone's wildest imagine. It means standing up for what you believe even while the world laughs at you and telling you that you're wrong. Thank you so much for your comment, cyndi10. Have a great day!

      You are so right, writing takes lots of determination and pretty much having a deaf ear. Most people don't understand what writing is all about and they are oblivious to just what hard work it is. Beating procrastination alone, can sometimes take lots of will power. Distraction are everywhere including in your mind.

      Take care, stay creative and keep writing.

      pstraubie48: Thank you for your comment. It takes blood, sweat and tears if you want something bad enough. People telling me no has made me want to persevere even more so the joke is on them.

      I hope you have an amazing evening!

      Absolutely agree that it takes determination...

      I too have gotten up many times in the middle of the night to write but I still get up and about by 5 or 6...I guess my clock just does not know when to turn off...

      Angels are on the way to you this evening ps

      Thank you so much, Frank. I saw that article on sleeping in yesterday. I thought of all us writers knowing that creativity boosting is a must. Writer's block should be avoided at all cost. Thank you for following me. Keep up your fantastic work as well. Have a good day!
