Are you an "early bird" or a "night owl"?
If you didn't have anything else (like a job) making you get up at a certain time, when would you get up/go to bed? And do you think creative people tend to be more early birds or night owls?
I am a night owl, not and early bird! I cry to wake up early. lol
I do not know about others. I used to be a 'night own', now completely turned to be an 'early bird'. Creative people is a breed whom if you can leave to generalize will be preferable. Its the creative independence that is the specificity which I do not think can be ruled by time.
Interesting question for sure.
Thanks and regards.
I am a night owl, sleeping during the day. There is no real answer to the other question of yours because everyone is different. However for me i am more creative at night because i can concentrate better.
Now I'm definately an early bird. But when younger I was a night owl. It must be an age thing that it swaps around as you get older. Having said all this, one thing I do know is that I never have been an afternoon person at all, even when younger. I really feel much less energetic from a bout 2pm to about 5 or 6pm. Then I spring back into life again! Very odd.
I am becoming earlier than the birds as I keep getting up there.
I used to be a night owl. Going to sleep at 3 in the morning, reading all night, couldn't go to bed because of thinking. Now I wake up at 6 every morning for no reason. No alarm clock, no cats at the door, I just wake up. It is horrible! So I'm now an early bird who gets everything done by 10 in the morning.
I've always been an early bird. I used to get up early to eat breakfast with my dad. Now I get up whenever it gets light out. Same thing, no alarm needed... just a little light outside.
That might be part of the change. Light in the window. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.
I'm both!!! I am burning the candle at both ends right now, as a mother to 4 kids who has zero time for herself.
I find that my creativity sparks at night, which can be unfortunate, since I am up and at 'em early to get 2 of the 4 off to school.
I am trying something different now by setting an alarm for one hour earlier than I normally get out of bed to see if I can get the same sparks, when I'm fresh from sleep. Either way I think it'll do something beneficial by changing it up a little- keeping me on my toes, per se.
What about you? Are you the proverbial early bird or the opposite?
Definitely a night owl. And I think creative people may be either a bird or an owl. Depends on their type of creativity
It is interesting that how all the years went by flashed through my eyes, the moment i thought of writing the answer. There were days when i used to stay awake all night long. I'm an early bird now. It is like finally reaching home and knowing who you are.
Early bird, I could get up at 6 am and it wouldn't bother me at all. I have more energy in the morning and feel like I can accomplish more earlier in the day compared to late in the afternoon or night.
Night owl. I used to be both, but now I'm usually terrible in the morning.
I am both an early bird and a night owl. I choose to go to bed late, yet I can't sleep for long... just not for me! I guess the latest I have ever woken up is 2-3 PM (without jetlag) and that was after the most tiring day I have ever experienced. I do get more energy at night, but also I am perfectly fine in the morning.
I am an early bird. There are mornings that I am up at 4am starting my day. I like the quiet of the early morning and like to be awake for when the sun comes up. Sometimes I get more done between 4 and 7am than I do all day!
I used to be an early bird but ever since I got a job that requires working on a graveyard shift, I got used to being a night owl even though it's my day off. I think creative people can be either an early bird or a night owl because there are people who likes working when everybody's sound asleep while there are also those who finds inspiration easily in the morning or when the sun is still up.
I am Early bird. But when I was student on that time I was night owl but after so many years I face some medical problem like Digestive system problem.
Now I am early bird, for this I get more working hours and some morning walk make me fresh.
Definitely a night owl - but I would love to be an early bird.
It seems that by the time I am going full speed for the day, everybody else is slowing down - I'm hoping that Seeker7's comment holds true.
This is kinda embarrassing because I don't want to come across as lazy, and I certainly manage to get a lot done in a day. However, I can neither wake up early nor stay up late. I guess I'm more of an "afternoon" sort of person. I consider myself creative though. I just have short creative bursts.

Are you an early bird or a night owl?I've always been an early bird. There's just something I've always enjoyed about waking up before daylight and witnessing a sunrise. How about you? Why are you a night owl or early bird?

I am definitely a night owl. I enjoy watching TV, going on the computer or reading in peace while everyone is sleeping. However, I don't get out of bed till around 11 or 12 noon- I just have no energy in the morning!

Does anyone else struggle with sleeping?I personally believe that there is some correlation between sleep issues and creativity, what do you think?

Why do you write? Why is it important for artist to make art and for writers to write?Do you think, we as writers, artists, musicians make a difference to our world?I, for one, did not grow up in an environment that encourages and rewards creativity. In my world, it seems far more important to have...
