This week I have unintentionally but thoroughly proven that I will not get up at 5:30am to exercise. I will just barely get up at that time to write, but if my mental position is that I’m going to get up and exercise rather than that I’m going to get up and write…I stay in bed. The result is I haven’t exercised hardly at all *and* I’m behind on where I want to be with writing. Not massively behind, I still have a couple days to finish the next short story in, but behind. And my red rockabilly dress has arrived at Stage One of its delivery location and is apparently *magnificent*, so having not been exercising or in any way losing weight is depressing. Sigh.

Anyway, so I have to figure the exercise window the hell out, but from Monday I will be turning up in the war room at Oh God Stupid, because it is my hope to write “No Dominion” in the second half of January, and that won’t happen if I don’t bloody well get up and write. Maybe a 5:30am arrival time in the war room will be early enough to catch some Left Coasters who haven’t gone to bed yet…

Man. I’m cranky. *sigh*

The notion of getting up to write or to exercise at 5.30 am leaves me boggled at the utter impossibility of doing any such thing. Or pretty much anything actually.

Working through the night to 5.30 am? Yes, I reckon I can still do that - though I haven't had to in some years.

Up with the lark? Forget it. Love, me and the night owls xxx

I used to be much more of a night owl, but I've grown to appreciate mornings more. And also Young Indiana wakes up at approximately the same time in the morning no matter when I go to bed, so I'm better off going to bed earlier and getting up earlier to work than staying up late to work and, er, not getting enough sleep.

I have total exercise fail here, too. It just can't face the cold outdoors. I'm telling myself it's a time-of-year thing and will improve once the mornings are lighter.

I've always thought that it was Completely Unfair that the dern stories won't write themselves.

Exercising at 5:30 -- nope, won't do it. I *can* -- and was, until grumblegretchankle -- get up, have breakfast and go the gym. But then, I'm a late-in-the-day writer, so I do all errands and schedule appointments during the front part of the day.

The dress is indeed magnificent. D'you want aught else from over here? (I'd suggest chocolate chips or pop tarts, but that seems a bit counterproductive.)

The thought of getting up at 5.30 in the morning would make any sane person cranky.

Another night owl here.
