The Trouble With Working Hours

By Holly Lisle

I’ve written one full, though short scene, and a good start on a second. Ended up deleting enough words, however, that my net gain is 182 words.

And again, I’m too tired to keep going.

This is why I prefer to write first thing in the morning.

Well, the kid’s first day of summer vacation is tomorrow, and he is staying up late watching movies and reading books, so perhaps I’ll be able to get an hour or two of fiction in tomorrow. And I won’t be answering questions or demonstrating techniques on long division. I need to figure out something, because as much as I enjoy the quiet of writing late at night, I just don’t have the stamina to work as hard as I need to.

I’m going to go to sleep, because that’s what I realized I was doing anyway. Falling asleep over a laptop?—not recommended.
