The Best Time to Write

Hey Y'all!!!!

I want to chat about something that's a game-changer for us writers, especially if you're struggling to find that perfect time to unleash your creativity. Let's talk about the magic of an early morning writing routine.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Early mornings? Really, Lorna?" But hear me out!

There's some solid science behind why this might be your golden ticket to writing bliss.

First, our brains are surprisingly fresh in the early hours. You see, during sleep, our brains are busy cleaning the house, sweeping away the mental clutter and stress from the previous day. Because of this, we wake up with a clean slate, we should anyway, which would make early morning the perfect time to dive into creative pursuits.

It's like having a freshly tidied workspace every morning for your brain. Man, that sounds awesome!

Plus, there's this thing called the 'creative peak'. Research shows that creativity peaks during and immediately after sleep for many people. Our minds are more likely to wander freely, making connections we might not see when we're fully alert. For writers, this allows us to explore ideas and concepts with a fresh, uninhibited perspective.

Then there are the wonderful twins called peace and quiet. Early mornings are typically serene, with fewer distractions and interruptions. This tranquility can create an ideal environment for writing, letting you focus deeply on your work without the usual buzz of daily life.

And let's not forget about the psychological benefits. Establishing an early morning routine can give a sense of accomplishment that carries through the entire day. It's like giving yourself a high-five first thing in the morning! Trust me, I've tried it, and it's true.

So, why not give it a try? Set that alarm a bit earlier and see how the quiet, fresh hours of the morning can transform your writing. Remember, it's about finding what works for you and embracing it. Who knows, your next great idea might just be waiting in those early hours of the day!

Happy writing, and remember, it's never too late to start your writing journey.
