"I think I'm nocturnal because I don't need much sleep ( I know it's not good for me, since I have not finished developing ), I just need approximately 6 hours of sleep per day, or less. But the only real reason that I stay up is…"
"I'm nocturnal because I work graveyards at a hotel, though I was never terribly inclined to follow a solar pattern to begin with (when I had an unstructured sleeping schedule, I'd fall asleep slightly before/at the crack of dawn and wake…"
"My melatonin secretion doesn't start until ~1:00am. apart from that, Nighttime is far quieter and cooler than daytime. Its darker, daylight is far too bright, even on cloudy days I wear sunglasses to reduce the brightness (I seem to be…"
"I just don't see much point to going to bed early when I don't have to... there is SO many other things I could be doing!!!! Why sleep? I regret it during school but usually I just appreciate the time I spend at night working or doing this…"

"I know what you mean......I do my best writing between about 11pm and 3am....I wonder if it's because my brain likes to wander around a lot, and I find it difficult to do that when the noise of the day is stealing my mojo..."
"You didn't write too much...I get like that sometimes (extremely ranting because all of a sudden your fingers are flying across the keyboard and there's nothing you can do about it? I wish that would happen to me more often during…"
"I am mainly nocturnal because I do all of my best writing after about 11 pm. I can try to write during the day, but it's always staggered and, well, BAD. But as soon as about eleven rolls around my muse goes into overdrive and I can then work…"
"I have too many people on Skype from the States - they are an awful influance on my not going to bed... Like right now it's half 11 and I'm just like "the night is young".
... My body clock hates me...
