    Questions About Sleep Habits for Writers

    How much sleep do you typically get? Do you sleep wacky hours or do you have a regular sleep schedule? I know that mine are wacky but I always say its cause Im an artist!

    Sleep is a non-existent dream that will soon return back to me when the kids are all grown up and out of the house...I hope.  smile

    I do try and get at least 6 to 7 hours of sleep if I can. I am quite happy if I get 6 hours at least especially if I am working the next day. I go to bed at about 10 or 11pm and get up at about 5:30 am if I am working the next day. The thing is, I tend to carry on computing until late sometimes and it is not good for my health.

    I have an unusual sleep schedule right now, but it's more so because of my job than anything else. I prefer to get my work done as soon as I get up in the morning. So, I can't enjoy anything before going to work because I'm dreading going to work. But, since I work on a 2nd shift schedule, my 'morning' doesn't occur until around 2:00pm. I'm convinced that if I didn't have a job, I would get up early every morning and write.

    My sleep is very scheduled. I sleep 11pm to 6am almost all the time. I just recovered from 3 years of having a child who didn't sleep through the night so I am very strict with myself now about making sure I get a decent amount of sleep. I typically write early in the morning right after I get breakfast for the kids and late in the evening after they are all asleep.

    Since I'm not a full time writer and have a regular job during the week, I have a set schedule for sleeping, writing, and getting other tasks accomplished. If I could stay at home and write all the time, it would probably vary.

    I did not change mine, they are the same as they were before I began writing. I simply stop the writing at the times for sleep, meals, etc. I make sure that I get my usual 8 hours of sleep - unless something else bothers me. Then I correct that.
