Keeping Things Fresh

I am definitely a creature of habit. I like a routine. Get up, fix coffee, have coffee while checking internet things, try to write, blah blah blah. But today, I've switched things up. See, normally my husband takes our 6YO to the bus stop in the morning allowing me to sleep a little later which means I'll stay up late. But I've noticed that I write more in the morning, when my mind is fresh. When I stay up, I say that I'll get writing done, but I usually just end up watching a lame movie or youtube videos or playing phone games. Then I'm like:

So, I'm hoping this change will make a difference in my daily word count. We shall see. It's 8:30 now (a good hour before I normally wake up), and I've already done my twittering, facebooking, and now, even a blog post.

Also, there's just something about making a change in one's life. Even though it's just a tiny thing, I feel like I'm moving forward. Like I just leveled up or something!

Now it's time to spend those experience points and get down to business!

What about you? Are you a morning or night or evening writer? Do you stick to a routine or let things happen as they may?


  1. Good question!

    Lately, I've been noticing that I write A Million Times Better in the mornings. At night, my brain is on auto pilot and if I try to write I usually end up dozing off in front of my hopefully, I'll be able to start writing in the mornings.

    It sounds like you got a lot accomplished this AM, that's awesome!! I hope the nice morning routine continues for you!

    1. I don't know what it is about mornings. They just work for me. I'm the same way with writing at night. Or I tend to procrastinate more.

      Thanks! I hope your morning writing goes well, too!

  2. I'm a night owl myself but I find it hard to write either way sometimes. I usually try to exercise to get my body awake, that helps A LOT! It pumps some sort of crazy writing energy in me and suddenly I want to write 5 novels in a day haha.
