When to Write

Finding the time to write can be difficult. Most writers write in the morning, or so it seems. But, what if you are not a “morning person”?

If you function better later in the day, then you should consider writing at the time when you are at your peak. But, if your productivity suffers when you delay your writing until later, then stick with the morning approach.

Posted on January 7, 2011. Filed under: Life After Nano, Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , |

Started writing character sketches (using Scrivener’s way to organize things), and stayed up all night doing them. Upped my word count to 28588, so 30K is now within another day’s writing. Seems like I might be getting things going again, a much needed restart, but now I have to sleep.

I do not know if I can carve out the time to write five pages (on average) per day. And, I have never written a script before.

Maybe sleep will help.
