Do you write with passion and inspiration in the morning, afternoon, or night? Or, is your muse disciplined enough that your best work comes out whenever you are sitting at your desk, no matter what time it is?

It is a strange feeling--this urge to write. It really cannot be xplained, but we all feel it. Thanks for sharing.
I just read an article about a freelance writer who had to type out her entire article on her phone because her client needed it done and her computer was having issues. It's funny how quickly our ideas can leave us if we don't write them down.
Agreed. A quiet house is a busy mouse (computer).
I have a narrow window in the afternoon where I feel productive, but my muse visits me in the evening. At nighttime I come alive and can type all night. I wish it weren't so, for the sake of going to bed early.
Then, if you ever become a location independent writer, you should move to a country that observes daily siestas. You could write all morning, then take the later afternoon off to nap or have fun. Spain maybe?
yes, I need uninterrupted hours, not just moments. Once I get in the flow, I just want to hide in a dark hole and get it all out.
That is a very interesting answer. I wonder if it uses different parts of your brain that function higher at some times and not others. for instance, if you hand me a calculus problem at 7 am, I'll cry.
If you hand me a calculus problem at any time I'll cry. LOL! I think it may be because at night I want to relax and not think too hard. To me, writing fiction is as relaxing as watching a movie or listening to music.
Sheila, do you have any short stories available on HubPages?
I do. One is called "On the Storm-tossed Sea" and the other is "The Fireside Chat". I wrote them years ago and copied them here.
