Maybe you should go to bed – or should you? If you have a plot, character or research problem that you can’t overcome, you might try staying up late to solve it!
According to an article titled Perfect Timing in the September, 2012 issue of Mental Floss (my new favorite magazine), people think more abstractly when they are tired. “Letting your mind wander when you’re worn out might lead to a creative solution to a problem that seemed insurmountable at noon.”
So this weekend, ignore the clock, stay up late and work on your writing.
