Add me to the insomniac list! I have always done my best work at night.

I can't say I ever set aside a certain time to practice or study. I usually spend any free time I have reading...5 minutes here...half an hour there. I view each new image I create or photo I restore as practice for the next one.

The one thing I have to force myself to do is split time between "real" drawing and painting and computer painting. The computer is like a big black hole...sucking the day away before you even realize it. One day I realized I had not picked up a real paint brush in weeks and something did not feel right about that! I would be willing to bet a lot of photographers feel the same way when going from traditional to digital. You start to feel guilty about leaving the old darkroom all alone...sniff.

I can't believe I am in the company of so many "night" people!! I thought I was alone here. My friends all kid me.. I always leave yahoo messenger on and by 2:30 am the last of them are giving up and saying good night to me.. even the west-coasters. I'm just hitting my stride by midnight. I never understood why, but I've often told people I'm working at 1:30 am or so when they ask why I'm online so late.

Truly, I thought I was the only one crazy enough to be on at that time and felt self-concious about posting on RP at sometimes as late as 3am. So many times.. especially recently my que to go to bed was I started seeing the sky lighten.

Obviously I am not a very disciplined type when it comes to time management but I spend I would say a good 3 hours/day learning in some way, reading or doing an excercise or tutorials etc. I start whenever I drag myself out of bed.. with aid of caffiene and once I start I can't pull myself away. "actual" work and study alternate throughout the day.

some how there is comfort in knowing I'm not alone in my insomnia

Talking

Hello - my name is BK and I'm a nightaholic...

I try to quit. I really do. I try to keep a "normal: schedule. Up early, to bed by 10 or no later than 11. I'm just weak. I look at the clock and it's 1:30 AM and I'm just getting started.

My only comfort is meetings like these, with other self-confessed nightaholics. I don't know what I'd do without you guys...

~snif~

I think we're going to have to start a "Nightaholics Anonymous" group around here
