Night Owls and Sci Fi and Fantasy Blog Awards!
I was born a night owl and will always be a night owl. I think it's super cool that my daughter starts high school in the fall and will be in band and the Color Guard (the dancers who twirl flags with the marching band)and their mascot is The Owls. They call themselves the Night Owls too! I'm already stocking up on sweatshirts, water bottles, and totes with the adorable creatures!
How many other writers out there or readers...are night owls? I go to bed around 4 am, wake up around noon or so and start drinking coffee. During school, my schedule is a little bit more normal, but not much. It only changes a couple of hours. I take midnight walks. I'm like a freaking vampire. Dinner is usually my first meal. I know...jacked up, right? I've been fighting my night owl side since I was born. I detest mornings. But now it really works with my writing schedule. I almost always write after midnight. I was born at 11:45 pm. I wonder if this has anything to do with my night owl habits.
So, I want to hear from other night owls. Tell me I'm not the only one!!! Please!!!
