Find Time For Writing – Night Owl or Morning Lark?

Time for writing- one of the big questions for writers, whether experienced or just starting out.

The bottom line is that, if you want to write, you’ll find time, but it’s helpful to have some ideas on where to look. Awhile back, I did some posts on the topic of finding time to write, and I think it’s time now to revisit this topic and delve more deeply into it.

One way to find time is to know your own strengths and weaknesses, and one of these is whether you’re a night owl or a morning lark. Are you more alert and aware in the early morning or the late night?

Some articles on time management will tell you to get up early and write before the rest of your family gets up.If you’re a night owl, that’s not a great strategy, and contrariwise, if you’re a morning lark, staying up late to write means you’re more likely to sit there staring at the screen without actually doing much writing.

Your best time of the day is when you’ll think more clearly, write better and be more productive, so you’d do better to arrange our schedule to do your writing then, (and use the not so good times for rote tasks like folding laundry)

So, when’s your best writing time, morning or night?
