Ok I played a game first thing when I woke up. No distractions. And it was pleasant. I think I’m gunna try and work on my story first thing in the morning. Right now I’m editing. Not too in depth but checking for continuity and for places that should be removed completely, burn and never seen again. Just kidding. I save numerous versions of my work so the ideas are retrievable at this point.
I did look around to find if there was any benefits to writing first thing in the morning. Here’s what I found:
According to www.craftyourcontent.com,
To begin with, writing immediately after waking up, especially about things that you’re grateful for, can put you at a higher energy level. You’ll feel more positive toward life, and less likely to give way to negative thoughts. You’ll also become more generous to other people, which brings you even more happiness in return.
Writing also helps you to reduce stress. Research suggests spending 20 minutes per day writing about positive things can lead to a decrease in anxiety. So if you’re currently in deep stress, start your day with a positive writing session. You’ll find yourself in a much calmer state for the rest of the day.www.craftyourcontent.com,
I could use a little decrease in anxiety. Having a mourning routine has made me significantly calmer inside and out. I hope I can maintain it.
I also found this from writersinthestormblog.com
There is one major reason to wake up early and it is this: you set the tone for your day with purpose and intention.
When you start the day on your terms, not only do you have more control over your day, you’re also more likely to have positive emotions at the beginning of the day and by extension, the rest of the day. Both of these benefits will have an extremely positive influence on your writing.
I have something new to try: Working on my novel in the morning. These little adventures are fun.
