My Dearest most dear ever adored friend without whom I cannot live,
I am most vexed. In spite of myself, I always end up sleeping at one, two or three in the morning, even though I know well that I won’t be able to wake up (without taking heroic efforts) to go to school. And you wonder what I must have been doing till the early hours of the morning? I wish I could say that I had been studying and fighting against my urges to sleep for the sake of academic success–But no, I confess to you my drst friend that I had been staring for hours at Microsoft Word, typing a sentence then backspacing each letter until I returned back to a blank page of the chapter I was supposed to rewrite and send over to my patroness[editor] a week ago. This isn’t the most productive way to spend one’s time. I do know that, but I still remain before my laptop, truly believing that to sleep means to forgo that moment when I might be struck by an inspiration. But of course, no ‘AH-HAH’ moments transpired in my groggly mind. I never do learn my lesson. This ridiculousness I repeat the next evening, staring at Microsoft word, the glow of its blank whiteness illuminating my countenance, while my mind is filled with muslin, bonnets, trousers [yes, trousers! yum], cravats and characters nodding away to sleep. Whatever am I to do with myself? I have skipped class and it pricks at my conscience. I had once been a good student who considered it sacrilegiousto skip. Oh, those good old days! I shall try to be more disciplined the next time and force myself to sleep. I promise you!–no, I mustn’t promise, but I will try my best!
Your most obedient and humble servant,

Don’t be soo hard on yourself.
Half of us do the same, when we shouldn’t be.
I should be solving 12 case studies by Monday.
I guess staring at Microsoft Word when we should be sleeping/studying is a universal problem when it comes to writers, haha. Yes, I mustn’t be too harsh on myself–but I really do need the sleep I’m missing out on!
Your headers are always so pretty!
I can really relate to you. Writing is keeping me from staying focused. It’s my last week of school and I can’t even get my homework done, because I spend hours and hours typing away on my computer.
And I thought I was the only one who dreamed of muslin dresses and such! The way they dressed back then was so simple but yet elegant. But I think that my dream was the result of me falling asleep watching The Duchess.
hehe thanks for the compliment.
YES, I know, writing is keeping me away from focusing on my studies! I really do need to set my priorities straight–and yet, though I know this, I won’t do this. Writing beats all.
Ah..The Duchess…such a heart-breaking movie.
Haha. It’s alright.
We the people love fashion and writing.
School is well,
not a priority?
Boo. I NEED to study.
I am Ruku, btw.
What’s your name? ^^
Me? My names June! How’d you find my blog anyway? If you have a blog, please tell me, so we can be blog friends. I don’t know that many writers who have blogs. And I want to read more blogs by writers so…if you have one… 🙂
June is a pretty name (:
Mine is: http://ishallchangered.wordpress.com/
Thanks! I hope you continue to post often. I’ll be following….hehe. So are you an aspiring author/poet? It seems like you’re into poetry.
I am not sure. But yeah, poetry comes more naturally and you? (:
Oh, where are you from? x
I’m not that into poetry–it leaves a lot to the reader’s own interpretation. And I’m not good at reading betweeen the lines. I’m a lover of prose.
I’m currently living in Toronto right now.(But I wish I was residing in ENGLAND–it’s the country I’ve been writing of for years) And you?
Prose is amazing to read. Toronto?
Weee. I am going to hopefully be doing my graduation there.
England is beautiful!
I live in India (:
India? Oh, awsome! i haven’t been there, but I love Indian food. Mmmm
Haha. Yeah, the food is good (:
..I can’t believe I totally missed this post. But, like you’ve been told 🙂 don’t be too hard on yourself. Lol, yeah I do think it’s a universal writing thing. I can’t sleep until 4am now, and i try to write..but nothing’s really coming out o.O
Have you ever tried writing in the early morning? (I have, and failed miserably). I guess I’m more inspired at night
Trousers, yum! Lol!
