I’m Definitely a Night Person. What about you?

Everyone seems to have a time of day they are most comfortable with. My husband is a morning person. Up at the crack of dawn. My fellow blogger, Marie Patrick, is also a morning person, sitting down at her computer to write at... gulp, 4:30am.

Not me. I’m a night person. I don’t sleep particularly late, 7:00am or 8:00am, but I have to make myself go to bed at midnight (lately it has been 1:00am). I discovered decades ago that my prime productivity time is between 10:00pm and 2:00am. Now why would a homo sapien be wide awake with mind racing at those hours?

It does boggle my mind. Though I admit to being better at revising and handling edits on a manuscript in the morning, when it comes to being creative like writing a brand new story, it hits at 10:00pm. Sheesh.

What about you? Are you a morning person or a night person? Or is there another alternative I haven’t heard of yet? Just curious :-)

Always, Lexi



  1. I am definitely a night owl....have to force myself away from the computer and coding at 2 or 3am then it's reading or watching TV until 4am. Up by 8 during the school year and 10 in the summer starting all over again.

    1. Wow! How do you survive on so little sleep? I'd be a wreck. That is amazing!
