I wonder if it's easier to work at night because there's no expectations on you to produce things at night? Does that makes sense? When I'm ill I work well too!

How fxxking long does it take to transcribe an interview????! Yessir, it's going to be a late one for me tonight. Anyone else buring the old midnight oil, tooting the industrious call of the night owl, stoking the flames of the furness of intellectual persuit on a graveyard shift? Hmmm... Please let the transcribing end...

Sorry Lara, I didn't know you asked me how I got on the last time I posted in this thread - I wasn't being intentionally rude, just ignorant To reply belatedly, I finished it quite early in the morning and, unfortunately, the experience of doing it is a terrifying prelude to the sheer amount of transcribing I'll have to do this coming term.

Well, I'm working late tonight, trying to get something out of an absolutely crap day, and the forum is deathly quiet.... Am I working alone or is there life out there?

I have to say I am the complete opposite! I find it really hard to work in the evening and even when it gets to 4pmish I find my brain turns to mush and I just can't do anything productive at all (like now)! I'm quite worried about when it comes to write up and I need to put the hrs in in the evening too cos I just can't seem to accomplish anything.

I'm going to be up all night for the forseeable future. I've had a stressful month with my bike being stolen, and golfish dying, and not knowing where to go with my chapter. So chapter due in a week, and a lot to do.

Sorry to hear that your bike was stolen and your goldfish died - grim I'm in a similar situation to you with my work - chasing my proverbial tail. Well, I'll be working late too for the foreseeable future - so you're not alone

Hey chrisrolinski - my goldfish of six years died lst month. I was actually quite sad and missed his little dancing mug about my kitchen. Rubbish news about your bike too.. The chapter will work out though - I was in the doldrums with my second chapter last week and yesterday it worked itself out, ta-da! Such is the nature of this work...


Do you guys really work all night?! I need sunlight to work personally. And working into the night reminds me of the days at uni #1, being a slack undergrad and pulling 'allnighters' with pro plus (to get in a 2000 word essay where reading list was seven books long and the answer was probably in the title...). so working at night actually makes me feel naughty and unorganised.

I am horribly disorganised. And waste so much time. I deserve everything my stupid work strategy throws at me!

At least I am currently typing the in the daylight looking at my plants on the windowsill, that is quite restful. But at night, I feel the pressure, and actually work!

Choo choo! All aboard the nocturnal workers' express! Who'll be joining me tonight as I travel along the route of late night, lonely work?
