O William Blake

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.

William Blake

O William Blake, if you only knew how much I’d love for my life to be as smooth as this quote sounds. Ok ok wait let’s think about this. Something I learned as a writer was that we all have different times when our brains work best. Some brains work best first thing in the morning, some late at night. So this nice tidy order looks great in theory but truth is these aren’t one size fits all. Learning when your brain works best can help you decide your daily schedule. My best writing hour was 11am, so I’d plan my day to allow me to have my butt in the chair by then. Writing before bed is just part of my life but it doesn’t feel the same as writing at night.

This quote also seems to advocate for routine. I like routine. I think it’s important to create routine but I also think it’s important to allow flexibility into my life. There’s something creative about switching things up intuitively.

When’s your best time to write? Can you relate to this quote from a different perspective?

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. 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.
