The Voices Are My Friends...


Hello? Is anyone out there? I'm not sure anyone is, seeing as it's 5 A.M. on a Sunday morning and honestly I'm amazed I'm up. Not only that, but I'm coherent and WRITING! And I don't just mean this blog post, but like for reals writing. Well, rewriting, anyway, while I also jot down some thoughts on a new project. What is so amazing about this, you ask?

I'm NOT a morning person. Generally, it takes until about 10 A.M. or so for me to be fully functional. I can be awake, yes. But that's just going through the motions. So it would seem the whole thing people have been telling me that having your third kid really changes this is true: looks like baby boy's plot to convert me from night owl to morning bird just might be working. Although, as I type that, he's sleeping peacefully in his bed. It's like he woke up the voices in my head or something.

I suppose that's something I should be grateful for. It's been several weeks since I've worked on anything writerly. So maybe I shouldn't complain about the voices in my head? Nope, no complaints here. Those voices make being awake by myself since 3 A.M. less lonely.

So that's what's going on with me this morning.

What are you guys up to?

I have to say, I'm jealous! I wish I'd been up at 5am working. As it is, I'm going to be playing catch-up all day!

I'm reading your blog and commenting on it. :)

5am. PAH! With my kids I didn't get to sleep before 2am and still had to be up 7am. One reason I've aged as much as I have.

I've heard kid three is either your hardest child or your most rewarding child--but everything definitely changes.

I'm so happy to hear you're writing! Yay!
