IWSG: Daylight Savings

Today is IWSG day, a monthly event Alex Cavanaugh started to get writers sharing about their insecurities and other details about their lives. Again, I am late to post today but it’s still Wednesday here in California! First, let me get to this month’s IWSG question: What is your favorite aspect of being a writer? One of the many things I love about writing fiction is that I have a tangible place to bring the fruits of my imagination and creativity instead of just letting it all sit in my head. Honestly, it wouldn’t be healthy if I kept all that stuff inside.

This weekend marks the end of daylight savings. The good news is that I’ll get an extra hour on Sunday. I'm hoping to spend this once-a-year gift working on my novel. And if not, I might spend this time sleeping in. So yippee for that extra hour! That said, I’m not usually a big fan of the end of daylight savings. There’s something about shortened days and earlier nights that reinforces the notion that there isn’t enough time to do things I want to do, and that includes work on my novel-in-progress. It’s an unproven notion at that but I still find something a bit disheartening about days cut short. 

What are your plans for the extra hour on Sunday? Do you prefer longer days or longer nights?
