    Why do I feel compelled to sit here late into the night instead of going to bed.

    I find it hard to get up from my computer even when my eyes are blurred from looking at the screen,even when the dishes are not cleared up. I can't be lazy because I find it hard work. I often get frustrated with what I write.Still I sit here.

    Honnestly, i dont have a clue but you are certainly not alone. Only thing i could put it down to is theres more people on here at night and we antispate the thrill of getting a notification from someone whos read our piece's. smile

    Hello BayGirl33, it is not an easy answer but I can give you a few reasons:

    1. You are experiencing stress and it's causing you insomnia

    2. You work all day and need "You Time" before you go to sleep

    3. You are one of those people that don't require much sleep

    4. You are addicted to the Internet, or HubPages, or you just love what you are doing

    Not the worst things in the world, but perhaps it's just hard for you to turn off you brain.Often, writers get into a focus phase and find it hard to stop writing. That's why people write books. Hope this helps...

    For me it was accomplishment or lack of. If my numbers fall I want to build them up so anyway I tried that or looked at others I know there is no way to ever get a handle on that. Someone that has been dead a year might have bigger numbers than me! I am still bad for it but now I do take more me time away from Hp. I have made a goal to meet daily (although now on busy business days I forget about it) and once I meet that goal I say OK that is all I can do. I got on last night with a 92, paid back visits, answered comments on my hubs. Looked at all my hubs, changed a picture on one; then went to bed. This morning I have 97. Maybe some of us expect to much of ourselves, I know I enjoy being here better not putting so much pressure on myself.

    I agree with all the previous comments but I found there is another reason as well. I want to read the hubs and comment on the ones I enjoy. And I need time for it. Because I do not want to scan the articles but read every word, I could miss a lot if I scan.

    Addict, addict! Just like me :p

    No, it's probably just more of a dedication thing, and that is certainly not a bad thing. I have a theory that I think is backed up in some psychology that those who are creative have their best breakthroughs late at night.

    Around the spiritual community, it is said that because most are sleeping, there is less 'psychic noise' whizzing around. I don't like the terminology of this however, I much prefer the term energy.
