Bad Sleep Is Bad

I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep recently. This isn’t good for a writer. Here’s why.

1) Lack of motivation. When I’m tired, I have a hard time getting off my ass or getting fingers on keyboard. This does not lead to productivity.

2) Lack of creativity. I might be planning things through the day, but by the time I’m at the keyboard, I can’t get it out. It might still be banging away in my skull, but a couple of failures to get started and that lack of motivation kicks in, so nothing gets done.

3) It’s a self-licking ice cream cone. Weird thing is, when I’m really tired, I have a hard time going to bed. I’m watching something, or playing a game, or reading something, and I look at the time. I know I should head off to bed, but I don’t get up and do it. Inertia.

This is not at all good because Friday is the launch of the Farewell, Something Lovely Kickstarter. I need to be pumped and active for the two weeks it is running. This might prove difficult.

But it’s got to be done. Better get my ass in bed by a good time tonight.
