  • Mood:
I'm so addicted to Sanami Matoh's wonderful creation, Fake, that it's starting to worry me a little. Last night, for example, I stayed up later than I'd intended reading some of Totally4Ryo's fanfiction, which I'm enjoying a lot. Then, at 2:30 a.m., I tried to go to bed, but couldn't sleep because two new ideas for Fake story plots were jumping around in my head, so I had to switch on the light and scribble down the gist of them in a notebook I keep next to my bed for that purpose. One of these days when life slows down a little, I'll start actually writing them. Actually, that probably won't happen until I start getting more sleep. I feel that almost the only part of the day that really belongs to me is the time between 11:30 p.m. and 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. That's when the other people in my life finally settle down and stop wanting my time, energy, or input, and at that time, I can be reasonably sure the phone won't ring. So I sacrifice sleep for time alone. There's got to be a better way.

However, I can't say I'm not looking forward to going to work today, because I'm one of those fortunate people who has a mostly fun job. I just wish I could have it all! Read / write /draw all day, AND do my job, AND maintain an exercise program and social / family life, AND have time for all the necessary chores of life, too. I always hated that expression, "You can't have your cake and eat it too." Why the hell not? Someday I'll figure out a way.
