A to Z Exhausted

Welcome to the 2014  A to Z Challenge. My theme for this year is why I shouldn't be participating. Thank you to David for writing the post that got the voices in my head working against me

Exhausted as I am each night, how will I find the energy to add yet another thing to my day? I used to be a night person. I wrote at night, stayed up to play games and to read. Now, unless there's a damn good book in my hand, I'm wiped out by eleven if not before. Somewhere around forty, I became a morning writer. Not a morning person. Goodness, don't even think about asking my grumpy lump of a body to work before 9am, but I'll be happily writing at 7am. Maybe it's because I can zone out and I don't have to deal with real people that early. I need my writing time, it makes me a more pleasant person during the rest of the day.


  1. Exhausted is not a pleasant place to be. I can relate.

  2. I think we all feel a bit like this at times, especially April! I too feel better for the rest of the day if I've got some writing in though. :)

    1. Welcome back! I enjoyed your posts last April. :)

  3. Ha! You're so right. But writers are up for punishment, I don't know why else we continue to do what we do ;) I read through your other A to Z posts and many your thoughts and concerns matched mine.*solidarity!*

  4. Exhausted seems to be a permanent state. I'm usually in zombie mode by 9pm; I'm worthless after that.

  5. I am definitely not a morning person but find I write better then ( and early afternoon). I still stay up too late but I'm watching TV, reading or piddling on the computer (damn you Facebook).

  6. Writing does energize us. Kind of like finding the time to exercise. It seems impossible, but once we make a little time for the things that make us feel better, we're more productive throughout the day.
