Disoriented but happy

I went to bed at 9 o'clock this morning, after staying up all night to finish an article. Unfortunately, that meant I slept until nearly 4 in the afternoon — and getting up that late in the day is exceedingly disorienting.

So I've been taking things nice and easy. I'm trying not to go back to sleep, even though I'm still quite tired, so that I give myself a chance to go to bed at a normal time tonight and get back on a normal schedule. I'll probably blog a little bit, work on some client work if I feel up to it, then read a bit before bed. I also have a meeting this evening with some of my local writing friends from NaNoWriMo.

Have you ever stayed up all night to finish a project? How do you get back on schedule afterward?

I was wondering why I saw you commenting on Lori's blog so early in the morning yesterday. LOL Hope you're back to the land of the living today.

Well, I don't know about the land of the living... I now seem to be stuck on a schedule that involves sleeping until noon or 12:30pm.

On the bright side, though, I've gotten some good work done between midnight and 4am! That has always been my most productive time, and I feel like my work output has really suffered since I stopped letting myself work that late at night.
