M. B. Weston’s Writing Diary: 01/20/15

Good writing requires a good night of sleep–at least once a week.

Writing–especially on deadline–requires not sleeping.

When these two laws of natures collide, the results can be either hilarious or tragic depending on your sense of humor.

I need sleep, but I need to write. Sometimes i feel like these two truths shouldn’t be allowed to exist in the same universe.

Yes, I wrote today. But I fell asleep twice doing it. There has to be a better way. Well, on that doesn’t include hijacking Dr. Who’s Tardis.

Really what it means is sacrifice. That, and I’m going to have to start being more aware of how I’m spending my time.

Hmmm… I must ponder this more–after coffee. I will make this work.

How about you? Have you ever just felt like you don’t have enough time to make good writing happen?
