Writing is different when you're fresh.
Food is different when hungry.
Exercise is impossible when tired.
The When of your activity means something.
You might think -- I don't feel like writing until before I go to bed -- only then I'll have something to say. I'll review my day; leave journal - of sorts.
But what if you get too tired? What if you get distracted? Get called to help somebody who needs a ride to the airport?
There are an impossibly large number of ways you can miss your night writing -- and almost none that'll keep you from writing first thing in the morning ( if you get up early enough.)
A schedule I've been getting used to follows:
1. Wake up and say hi to anybody else up.
2. Brew some fresh coffee -- French Press - set a 4-minute timer
3. Maybe do some exercise or stretching or cleaning while I'm waiting for the coffee.
4. Pour a cup, sit down at my desk, start typing.
But, there is a problem.
If you get your typing done by 6:30 or 7:00 -- you've got all day to have more ideas -- ideas easily worth 200 words.
I'm calling it typing right now — not wording.
Write enough and you'll be verbing up your own sentiments.
(but write first thing in the am -- then write more in the afternoon -- and then again once Europe is in bed )
