The Write Time

I've been working on one of my resolutions, to set aside a specific day of the week to spend a set time doing something writing related. I decided that I would make that day Wednesday, which was easy enough to decide on, but the real problem is picking a couple hours out of that day to make sure that I set aside every week. There are different things that could make the day, afternoon, or night the right or wrong time to write.


Well rested (hopefully)
Everyone in the house is gone or not up yet

I'll have to get up early (Who likes getting up early? Lol.)
I tried the morning this week and was late to class.



That's when all of my classes are.
A little lazy time is allowed after lunch.
Usually too much going on in the house and I'll get distracted.


Everyone could be sleep again.
More likely that I could find a quiet place and not feel like I was missing anything.

I could be super sleepy.
I may have homework due for the next day that will get in the way.

Well, based on the Pros and Cons I'll have to go with Night being the best time for me. It's the one with all the Cons that I can sort of control. So it looks like I'll be making that switch and seeing how that works out.

How about you? What time of day do you find best for your writing?


  1. It definitely depends on what day it is. I write most Wednesday mornings because I work Wednesday nights. On the weekend, I really like to get to Starbucks early to write, just to still have my whole day ahead of me. But back in the day, when I subbed and often had weekdays with no work or responsibilities, my favorite time to write was anywhere in the block of noon - 4pm. I pretty much never have that time free anymore, though. :(

    1. :/ Being an adult sucks sometimes, doesn't it? Lol.

      If nothing held me back from whatever time I wanted then it would have to be early, early morning or late, late night. I kind of like that weirdly calm silence part of the day that happens just before or after the weirdly creepy silence of the night. Lol.

      (Hey, I just realized that I can actually REPLY to someones comment instead of just commenting on my post! Did it send you something to let you know I replied? Yeah, I think I'm a little late to the game. Lol!)

    2. Yeah, the old subscription thing isn't working for me anymore. I didn't get a notification, which would be nice. I just want an email! I don't want to have to have a feed on google or whatever the heck it's trying to do!
