Writing and My Peak Hours

Aright last post about tweaking my morning routine.

I tried working on my novel right when I woke up in the morning but it was nothing special. Felt the same as working on it before bed. However, what was nice about working on it in the morning was that it’s one less thing to do before bed. So I think I’ll do morning pages and meditation and then work on my novel midday. I feel best when I start my day with my morning pages and I also feel better when I have less writing goals at night.

When do you write?

Morning? Weekends? Midday?

I know everyone is different when it comes to writing times and rituals. One thing I learned from writing over the years is that you should figure out when you are at your peak alertness throughout the day and block that time out to focus on your creative pursuits. I haven’t done that in a long time (mostly because of momming). 11am is my peak time it’s also when my little needs to eat, and it’s the time of day I’m finally ready to bang out a lot of my work work. But I think I can set an alarm to make sure I’m getting that time to focus on my novel.

So for tomorrow I’m going to try

8am Morning pages and Water
9am Meditation and visualization.
930am Tea and Work-work
11am the novel
12 then lunch
1pm work work.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
