Writer's Platform-Building Campaign
I also had to mention a few items that might hinder her stellar performance in the 1st grade. She never feels like eating in the morning, and she is a night owl. She's very difficult to get to sleep at night, which makes mornings a huge chore for both her and me, and now potentially her teacher.
She doesn't stay up at night just to be contrary. She comes by it naturally. I have always been a night owl, myself, and completely empathize with her. But even empathy doesn't change the fact that she will have to learn to function in the daytime--because that is when life happens.
And I guess the point I was trying to get at is this: I have always done my best thinking at night. I always studied at night. I always write at night. I get my best cleaning done at night, same with crafts. Movies make sense to me at night. Everything makes sense at night.
I think I've always been a little afraid to go to sleep because I know that when I wake up the haze will cloud my mind again. It takes me half the day to shake the fog, regardless of how much sleep I get at night. I waste entire days just trying to wake up.
You know those people on, like, Sally Jessie Rafael and Montel Williams who are, like, a man in a woman's body? That's how I feel. I am a night owl in a daytime forest.
And, well, there's no segway here because it's time to get the kids up for school, and I'm going to ditch you right now to go do that. SO, if you're a writer interested in acquaintancing yourself to other likeminded writers, check out this entry form on Rach Writes. Sign up is open until tomorrow.
If you're not, then pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. On Friday this blog will be part of the blog tour for Conversations with a Moonflower by Christine Hall, so make sure to come back for my review of that. I can't guarantee it will be good, but I can guarantee if I don't get those kids up, I'll be stuck with them all day.
