So, I’ve had a busy week publicizing the first installment of The Armageddon Showdown series – Guns of Perdition (my debut novel), and I’d love to say thanks to everyone who has supported my release!
But, aside from promotion, I’ve also been doing a bit of work on Book 2 – Sins of the Lamb. And I’ve discovered something interesting that you writer types probably already know about yourselves, but I’ve only just learned…there’s a better time of the day for me to write than at other times.
Mornings. I’m such a morning writer. The words flow like wine. The ideas are crystal clear. The muse stands behind me, hand on my shoulder, and constantly whispers in my ear.
Then…as soon as lunch is eaten, the wine turns into mud, the ideas become stagnant, and my muse dashes off for a quick round of golf with the boys. I haz the dumb.
While this is a great thing to learn – I can now try to plan my writing spells around mornings – it also makes it doubly hard now to write in the afternoons, because I’ve kind of given myself permission to not write in the afternoons.
How about you? Do you find a time of the day more conducive to writing?
If so, how do you force yourself to write in the off-hours?
Or do you even bother trying at all to write in the off-hours?
Share your thoughts below! I’d love to hear from you.
