Won't Be Getting Much Sleep Tonight

I accepted too much work from a content mill and it is all due before 6 am tomorrow. There were 10 assignments in all. I have four of them done, one of them half done, two more started and three that I still need an outline for. The money I'll make from writing them will pay for spring sports for the kids so I have to get them done. I know I'm not going to get up at 3 am to write so I have to stay up until I get finished.

I haven't pulled an all-nighter since I was in college in the 90s. I'm a morning person so this is not going to be fun. I'll make it happen though (with lots of caffeine) because the kids are counting on me making this $200. Hopefully they won't need me for anything tomorrow because I'll be sleeping.

I have caffeinated Mio. I only have four left to do and two of them are almost done. I'm hoping to be asleep by 2 am EST.

I feel ya, I'm going to stay up and finish a painting that I'm taking to the person buying it tomorrow.

Oh, the life of a struggling artist. I dream of the day when I don't have to struggle anymore. I see it in my future. With just a little more work, I'll be able to grab it and pull it in.

Yes, I just need to find that rich old man to marry me and then I wont have to struggle lol. Or, better yet, win the lottery. Yes.

It doesn't sound like it will be a fun night, but I'm guessing it will be worth it to earn that income for the kids. Take care, please.

Staying up until four wasn't so bad. Being back up at 7:30 is a problem. I'm working on better time management skills.

I got all my work done but I didn't get as much sleep as I would have liked. I finished my last article at 4 am and was woke up by my daughter at 7:30. My husband is home so my attention isn't essential today. I want to go to preschool storytime at the library at 10:30. After that, I'm closing my bedroom door and going to sleep.

That sounds like decent money for online writing, but maybe a fair bit of work. Surprised you have time to come here as well!

Good luck! I go through phases of writing like a maniac too. Wouldn't mind if that was a permanent state, either!
