the question to end all question: when i see you online at like 4AM, is it because you've had a late night or an early morning?

Early morning. I have trouble most nights keeping my eyes open past 9pm and I’m finding that most of the work I end up getting done during the day is corresponding with editors, doing lettering reviews, art checks, promotion, rewrites—that sort of thing. Real planning/writing seems to be best accomplished in the dark and quiet early hours of the morning.
