When is the best time for writing? Or to create any art for that matter? For me, I write best in the morning. Well, maybe not “best” but the inspiration flows freely and I get a lot down on paper (paper and pen for the first draft works well for me, too.)
I’m able to write a good bit between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m. Now, that is about to change. Upcoming job will require me to start at 7 a.m. and add on to that about a 45minute to an hour commute. So I’ll leave the house by 6:00, awaken at 5:00…it will take me that long just in ingest enough coffee to make me functional.
In preparation for these changes, I’ve been trying to write in the evenings. It’s turned out to be more editing and revising. That’s going ok. Editing seems to be an after-work sort of task. I’m wondering how the changes will affect writing something new?
What works best for you? If you have additional responsibilities (other jobs, kids, etc.)how do you schedule your creative time?
