I don’t know how factual this is but I’ve always had trouble sleeping. My brain just never shuts down. It seems I just function better at night. I do my best thinking, creating, brainstorming when the night time comes.
Though I hate the darkness; I love my dreams. I dream & sleep better during the day when the sunlight is shining on me than I do at night, when it’s pitch black, really quiet & dark inside / outside. It just feels tranquil for me to dream during the day. Thereby when the nighttime comes, I’m all fired up and ready to create the stories that I dreamt in my head.
Weirdo I know, but I accept who I am and am happy with my creative process. To each its own!
