One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other. Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.
This week’s topic is:
Last time, we discussed our seasonal preferences when writing. Today, let’s discuss time. Do you have a favorite time of day to write? Do you feel more creative at some points during the day than at others? When you write, is the time of day something that becomes part of the story?
Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.
My best , most authentic writing is in the early morning. It is s the time of clarity & freedom to ‘Just Write’ most of the time that happens by hand in a notebook or on my iPad. The inspiration & words flow in those early morning hours. The writing is authentic & clear. Writing for me & from me. I name it my meeting place time. I look forward to others responses.
I’m with you, Linda. Mornings are best. The fullness of the day spreading out in front of me–I feel like I can accomplish anything.
Then noon hits. And I realize I’m so far behind…
I write far better in the early morning hours. The world is quiet, the air is crisp and clear… In all honesty, I am better at everything in the morning. Once the sun goes down, I’m useless for anything more than watching TV.
I tend to write better later in the day. I’m too busy with my head full of “practical” things in the morning. I like the summer evenings and the cosy winter evenings. I feel more creative for some reason. But it can get too late. I’m not a night owl.
I seem to write better when I’m tired…either early mornings or later and night. It seems like I’m not paying as much attention to the editing and can get it done. The next day, I edit. 🙂
