I pulled another all-nighter last night (technically, I got about two hours of sleep) to work on Chapter 25 of Rumors of War. I really ought to know better than to do this to myself, I’m going to bury myself in fatigue if I keep staying up to work on things, but it was just so hard to put down the pen…

I got back a bit later from writing group than usual, and I remembered that I couldn’t go to sleep right away because I hadn’t written my last blog entry of the day, so I stayed up a bit to write one. Of course, in the course of this, I stumbled upon a cache of inspiration I’d buried somewhere in my unconscious (like finding a box of chocolates you’d hidden from yourself and forgotten about) and I just couldn’t stop writing.

I wrote until maybe two or three o’clock in the morning, at which point I realized the only way I was going to get a shower (since there was no way I’d wake up easily) was to take one before crashing. I showered, wrote a bit more after that, and crashed around four in the morning. I probably got an hour and a half of sleep, and then took the time between five-thirty and seven just to wake up and get moving. *shakes head*
