The Ideal Time

Do you have a favourite time of day or night to write? A period where your energy is at its peak? Most writers have a time of day they favour for writing; sometimes it’s dictated by routine, other times its just impulse. My favourite time is in the morning. I enjoy the peace of the dawn, before the day swells into a storm of phone calls, work, errands, friends and family. The morning feels like it belongs to me, my coffee, my notebook and my keyboard. There is a freshness in the unsullied beginning of a new day that stimulates me. I wake buoyed with vitality brought on by the lingering images of a fading dream or that exhilarating brain wave that woke me in the middle of the night. At the beginning of each new day, I am inspired with the promise of new discoveries.

I will always take advantage of any time I have to write, night or day, but it’s in the mornings where I have my most creative spells.

    1. Hi Daniel,
      I know lots of night writers…and if you have to be up in the morning for work, there’s not much sleeping going on 😉 I think if you take it slow and push back a little at a time, you’ll get to a place that works, but don’t give up those inspiring moments.
