Journal Entry #84: Who Needs Sleep When You Have a Life to Live?

I’ve given up trying to stay on schedule since not working a 9-to-5 job. I’ve tried hard to wake up by 10 am and fall asleep by 1 am. I’m usually still up at 2 or 3 am and still having trouble falling asleep. I used to work the night shift 20 years ago. It looks like I have no issue staying up late although burning the midnight oil is not what I want to be doing. Yet, here I am still awake and it is 2 in the morning where I live. I’m making progress with my last rewrite of my first novel idea and can’t wait to self-publish it. I can’t wait to self-publish my second novel idea in order to feel satisfied I finished two novels from start to finish. I also can’t wait to prepare myself for my third novel idea so I’m basically been coasting in the writing lane on the creative highway. At least, I have cut down the 20 novels/novellas I want to write to eleven and at most thirteen. Let’s just say I continue on my writing endeavors the only way I know how–with some resistance and a whole lot of ambition (in theory). In a way, my life has turned into something I don’t recognize. I’m hoping this will pass too and I can get living the life I had before COVID. That is all I have to say for now and going to try to get some sleep.
