When do you write? Are you an early bird? Do you get up hours before anyone else and pound away on your computer until the dog is howling to be let out and the kids are howling to be let in?
Are you a night owl, staying up after everyone else is in bed, fast asleep? Do you sit at your computer and write as the moon rises and then begins to set?
Are you most creative during the day? Maybe you have the days open to write. Maybe you have to sneak in thirty minutes during your lunch break.
Perhaps you save up your words and thoughts until the weekend when you tell the kids they need some Daddy time, shut the door to your writing room, and sip hot tea while your fingers fly over the keyboard.
I used to stay up til 2 or 3 in the morning. That was when I got the most and best writing done. Now I write during the day, although I have to admit, I’m not getting much writing done. Not fiction writing, anyway. I’m doing mostly non-fiction now.
When are you most creative? When do you actually write, even if it’s not when you’d like to be writing?
