I'm preparing for NaNoWriMo (see previous post) and trying to decide what time of day is the best for me to write. Here's how this is going:
Mornings - This would seem like the perfect time for me to write. My son is out of the house by 6:45 every morning. It's quiet and I have about 30 minutes before I need to get ready for work. However, mornings and my brain don't get along. The alarm echoes "hit snooze" instead of "get up!" I lay in bed letting the smell of coffee waft over me. Snooze...
Afternoons - My regular 40 hour work week doesn't allow for much time to write. Lunch would be the best time but where? The lunch room is crowded, noisy and frankly smells funny. My office is quiet but interruptions are frequent. Writing in my car has always felt awkward.
Evenings - This depends on which one, or does it. I planned to list my evenings and why I can't write that night but Thursday is the only evening that is truly booked. Hmmm.
Well, my 30 minutes this morning is gone.
When do you write?
