I'm Just Not a Morning Person

I tried to get up early and write before work. But the mental gymnastics I can go through in convincing myself that I don’t need to get up yet are truly amazing. I think my synapses could put Stephen Hawking’s to shame when I’m half-asleep and trying to convince myself I need more sleep.

Instead, I have been forcing myself to have better concentration after dinner. I can crank out a good amount of text then, even if it sometimes feels like my brain is swathed in warm towels and my fingers run at the speed of a paraplegic elephant.

There may be a time in my life that I jump willingly out of bed to greet the dawn and begin my daily communion with my keyboard. Until that day comes, I accept that the only time I will see dawn is if I have been up all night. I’m okay with that.

  1. Unless I wake up with an idea that nags me until I give in, I cannot typical write anything that makes sense before noon. My brain just refuses to cooperate.
