In college, my writing teacher taught me that, as a writer, it’s best to get into a pattern of behavior. Write in the same place, at the same time, with the same pen/pencil/computer/typewriter/stone&chisel. As a stay at home dad, trying to make it into the ranks of the pros, I have to write, well, whenever I can.
I used write at night. Into the wee hours, as it were. Back when I was a student, getting most of my work done while regular folks slept. I wouldn’t schedule any classes before 10am if I could help it, and I’d stay up late getting my stuff done.
Now, with kids and a wife who, thankfully, wants me in bed with her at night, I tend to write in the middle of the day. I don’t always write at that time–I have to get it in when I can. But 1pm is my preference.
So I’m curious, what time of day do you like to write?
