Its 5 AM and I've been up since 4

     Sometimes it is nice to wake up in the middle of the night and see that text message on my phone just waiting for me to respond. "I miss U" she last sent to me, but that was a week ago. Since then the phone has been silent in the middle of the night. The only texts that come through are during regular business hours.
      My project development partner was up til 11 pm with me, going back and forth on our script through Adobe Story. "How about this?" a text would come through and another idea would go into production. It is the stuff I live for and the nights I never want to end.
      Now I sit with ideas in my head and it is after 5 AM. Maybe I'll watch the sun rise or take my dog for a hike. Either way I wont be getting any text messages anytime soon.


  1. I've found recently that being a creator is rougher than most believe. Your work needs attention like some needy child, and given the deep true love you have for your work, you want to do it. It is in the bone to create and push these mental worlds into the real one...but it comes at a price. At times, my blog and books have taken their pound of flesh and sometimes it is my family...I need a clone.

  2. I do believe that is one of the reasons that many of the famous authors, like Hemingway, had cats and tons of failed relationships and marriages. We creators live in that world of our own construction, and it is hard to let people in or to share time with the real-world. I guess I am part of the trend of authors with cats.
