Well it is now 3 in the morning and once again I am up and cannot sleep.
Now I am no expert in either Chronobiology or body clocks for that matter but I am pretty sure my body clock is broked! LOL.
Last night I sat up till 5.30ish this morning finishing what was then the latest book in the series that I am writing and then I published a quick post and then went to bed and lay there until mid-morning waiting for a call to come through.
I think I finally fell asleep about 11ish and the call finally came through about 1.30 so sleep was not my friend once again. I have written on my problems with this before and we even had a poll on the correlation between Bipolar Disorder and Sleep patterns (the results of which can be viewed here) and I am convinced that there is a link. (Come to think of it my problems with sleep also featrued as the basis of this post.)
I am also convinced that in terms of my own personal sleep patterns they tend to have a very specific and fragile orbit around my lifestyle and the minute that changes that orbit is thrown off. Last night I was up most of the night and tonight the same is repeated. Not by a choice not to sleep (as in last night) but by an inability to sleep.
On a more positive note, not being able to sleep and having ended the book I was writing on a cliff-hanger, I have tonight started writing the next and possibly the final book in the series.
I was thinking of writing a completely different book first – one dealing with many childhood issues – but it seems that will have to wait. (Or possibly I could write them both at the same time – hm now that is an idea).
Perhaps I will try to sleep again soon and use the next fw days to get back on track. ONe of the ironies of that darned sleep orbit/pattern of mine being that whilst it is so easy to throw off track it is very difficult to get back on track it seems.
Hm I wonder if anyone else has the same difficulties?
