For some reason, my hubby always says “late night chicken fight” when I stay up too late. It’s become one of our little jokes. Well, let’s just say that the chickens were in fine form last night! I was up until about 1:30 a.m. simply because I couldn’t get my act together yesterday during the normal human working hours to get my Daily Digi post done. I had writer’s block. I had creative block. I knew what I wanted to write about but it wouldn’t come.
I switched topics. I ate candy (almond m&ms). I walked around the house. I sat at my keyboard. I typed random words. I went back to the topic I started with. I tweeted about having writer’s block. I ate more candy… It’s been years since I hit that type of writing wall. I have no idea why it had to be so difficult. All I can say is that it better not happen again anytime soon!
I don’t particularly enjoy the “late night chicken fight” schedule any more. I prefer sleeping these days. I’m one of those that when I go to bed late, I think to myself “If I go to sleep right now, I’ll get 6 hours of sleep.” That’s not a good approach because it almost always takes me a while to actually fall asleep. Then I start thinking about all the things I could get up and do. I even have delusions of just skipping sleep completely and finally taking the time to get “caught up” on so many tasks. Then I know that’s ridiculous, and that in the morning, I would still have not accomplished that to-do list. Why is the brain so crazy in the middle of the night to think of such things? Silly chickens!
