I woke up last night at 2:30 in the morning and couldn’t go back to sleep because our air conditioning is broken. In most places, this isn’t really a big deal. But I live in Alabama, which during the month of July is kind of like living in Vietnam, if Vietnam existed on the surface of the sun.
So after groaning and sweating and tossing for a few minutes, I decided to just stay up until 5 writing on Everybody But Lazarus instead of wasting my time trying to go back to sleep. This decision actually resulted in the first draft of the first chapter getting completed sometime during the wee hours of the morning. For some reason, I tend to write more prolifically in the middle of the night.
