When do you write? As authors and writers, writing is something that comes as natural to us as breathing. In a perfect dream world we’d be able to indulge our need to write at any given time of the day. Unfortunately life can intrude on time spent with our Muses and we must juggle writing with work, family, chores and other obligations. So when do you carve out a little time for your writing endeavors?
Some authors find the best time to write is first thing in the morning before the demands of the day or the heat gets too intense. Some write during the middle of day, grabbing a moment during lunch to hastily scribble down ideas as they nourish their bodies. Some like to write at the end of the work day when there’s no other demands to see to and everything is winding down. Some like to write at nighttime when everyone is sleeping and the stillness and the quiet can envelope them and their creativity in a peaceful cocoon with little to no chance of interruption. Others will write whenever they possibly can, anytime there is a lull in this hectic thing we call life.
Whenever it is you can find the time to sit down with pen and paper or keyboard and screen, chances are you are just happy to be writing.
Do you write at the same time everyday or is it more sporadic? Do you align your writing time with those moments when you are feeling most creative? Do you write no matter what, rain or shine, or whether it’s a holiday or vacation? When do you write? And does it irritate you when you don’t get a chance to write at all?
