Why Writing in the Morning works for me

Updated on November 29, 2014

How To Start Your Morning Off--Write!

Some of us are early birds and others, well, are still sleeping right now! So, as a writer, finding time is essential. Creating time to write almost seems like an art form in itself. More so, when other responsibilities, duties and obligations, many times, must come first. But, what if it's the first thing you do in the morning before anyone is up or anything is due?

Ah, the mornings, a time of renewed energy. A time where you are supposed to feel new, rested, excited, in tune. Well, if that's you, then go for it--write. Wake up right and write!

So, I'm practicing what I am preaching and I'm writing first thing in the morning before all my other tasks start competing with each other to get my attention and take over all my time. I am making time to write in the morning.

For me, the morning time is special. A new chance. A new day. New opportunities to take advantage of. Most importantly, the morning brings new ideas, new realizations, new beginnings. Your mind is fresh and if you have a nice cup of coffee or tea then you are really about to write a masterpiece. Trust me, I love my cup of coffee or tea in the morning and the more you are in the mood to write, the more you will write.





How Do I Stick To It?

Yes, I know, easier said than done, but they say it takes about 21 days to form a habit, right? Therefore, get going! Like any other goal, task, or obligation we always find the time to make the time and if the morning is your time than do it consistently.

Set your alarm 15 minutes before you are actually "due" up. Then write for that amount of time as soon as you get up.

Set your coffee maker to delay brew, the night before, and when it starts brewing write some more for the amount of time it takes to make your coffee.

Take a shower the night before and tack that time onto your writing time in the morning. Bring your laptop with you into the bathroom--hey, why not? That's quality time! Carve it out!

Use Modern Technology

One very productive way and my secret to getting my writing in especially in the morning is using my wonderful "Crackberry" device! Yes, my blackberry! It has a wonderful application called "MEMO PAD" and it's my best tool when on the go in the morning when I have an idea for my hub, journal or free writing prompts.  I love it. Why? Because I can then email it to myself, edit it and make it my next hub! It's worked wonders for me and its another way I keep all my ideas, topics, thoughts, and interesting stories ready to be recorded at any given time.  

So, pull out your device and start off your morning WRITE and WRITE!!!!!!

Have a Good "Writing" Morning!!
