How do I reconcile the fact that I get most research and writing done at this time but have to try and go to a job that requires being up during the day, at least some of the time, & see my partner?
I have tried writing during the daylight hours but I invariably ditch it the next day and though I modify the midnight musings they provide more value for time-spent.
I just graduated with my Masters and I worked nights. I missed time with my husband... he said that we were married on the weekends. Sigh, I am so glad that is over!
Best of luck with your studies!
And that's the long explanation.
(For the second part, please message me if you ever figure it out.)
I always love working late at the library and coming home around midnight, through a silent darkened world, lit only occasionally by the light through a window of what maybe a fellow scholar of the night in rapt attendance on her muse! This was especially strong lat year when i was doing research in The Hague in the Netherlands in the cold and dark month of February. A buzz.
I would love to adopt MysteryWatchers technique, but 4 year old twins don't allow it! Permanent tiredness during the thesis time is to be my fate I fear!
I like to get up in the morning, read something intellectually stimulating for about an hour w/ coffee, and then start writing. +
I love working on papers late at night because I can sit at my computer with no one to distract me! I also get my moments of brilliant inspiration around 11 pm, then I can't go to bed until 3 am - or until I get so tired my sentences stop making sense!
This carried over into serious research and writing, so for me at least it is more a habit than anything else. Although there have been plenty of times that I got a ton of excellent work done during the afternoon. I've always been the type that works without distractions for a good period of time. I don't have a TV on, I don't get bored with the work (usually), etc. so I've never had the struggle of various distractions.
