“The best time to write is early in the morning” ever heard that before? Bullshit! I can be creative whenever I want!… or so I thought.
I have found that the writers muse is a very fickle thing. For instance, I have no problem writing a lot during the afternoon, or even late in the evening. But that is only true if I start writing early in the morning.
This became apparent to me after working part-time as a substitute teacher.
One day, after a day’s work (I came home around 4 or 5 pm) I just lazily sat around and browsed the web, watched some youtube videos. I couldn’t focus! I could not do any serious writing. At least, it took a while before my mind started to adjust towards doing creative work.
I believe, writing is like warming up before a jog. Your performance is a lot better if you do.
In other words; You can write for much longer if you start early.
But, ultimately, there are a lot more to it than that. I highly recommend reading this. It might help you find your creative optimum.
