Writer's Care: Sleep

Posted on September 11, 2011 at 8:40 PM

I've learned a few things this week.  One is that if you're on a writing deadline, starting a diet probably won't work.  One big thing at a time is enough right now.  Dieting is a big thing, and turning in a book on deadline is also a big thing. 

Sleep is important to writing well. From my reserach, sleeping 7-8 hours a day is also important to losing weight.  Apparently if you don't get enough sleep, you're body thinks you need more food and your appetite increases.  

Sleeping the full eight is tough for me.  I become alive in a huge way writing-wise at night.  Oh well.  I'm working on it.  Back to editiing.
