Has it really been over a month since I last updated my blog? Where the heck have I been, in a time machine or something? D:
Okay, okay, let’s fix this …
YA Highway’s Road Trip Wednesday is a weekly prompt for young adult bloggers. They supply a topic, you answer on your own blog and join the blog carnival — and we all know how much I love carnivals!

What time do you prefer to do your writing?
Short answer: As late in the night as possible. Usually 1am – 2am.
Long answer: At work, I’ve sort of been categorized as the ‘Evening Girl.’ I work the 3pm shift every day, and usually don’t get out of work until at least 10:30 – 11:00, depending on how busy or slow the night has been.
Now, theoretically, I could have the morning and afternoon to myself before work to write – except, for whatever reason, I can never focus on anything but getting ready for work. I can’t just sit down and write, no matter how early I get up. I’m also the type of person who takes at least three hours to be properly awake (and caffeinated) for the day.
So, I write late at night. Very, very late at night. I finish up my word goals between 2:30am to 3:00am, and then don’t crawl out of bed the next morning until 11:00 – just to do it all over again.
Unfortunately, this means I don’t have a very healthy sleep schedule, and I get burnt out easily. I have loss days where I don’t write.
It’s hard – but then, who said being a writer was easy?
