The first thing I though of when I read today’s Daily Prompt was Christian Bale huskily declaring himself “the (k)night”, followed quickly by the chorus of Pat Benatar’s “We Belong”.
Then I pulled it together, went for some coffee and actually thought about the prompt.
I get my best work done in the quiet hours of the morning, as long as they’re actually quiet. I think my brain transitions well from dreaming to writing, because really, aren’t they the same thing anyways? I’m also totally the type to get my work done quickly so I can get it out of the way and get on with my day, which is why I despise closing shifts at work.
There’s a certain allure to the dark of the night, a certain romance that I can’t deny. Maybe I spent too many years as a goth kid, maybe it’s because I love staying up late, doing whatever I want, but I wish I were a night owl. As cranky as I get when it’s time to sleep and I can’t, I do love the night.
But judging by how many pingbacks there are to my own work in the morning section, I’d have to put myself firmly in the morning person camp.
Much as it galls me to admit it.
