    When is your most productive time to write and describe why?

    Although answered about 17 months ago, I am asking again because I think it broadens our awareness of the benefits and drawbacks for choosing - "early morning when I'm fresh", or "late at night when the family is quiet."

    The most productive time for me to write is in the morning.  But I have found lately that nothing else gets done when I take up all of my morning time to write.  So I decided to make a schedule for myself and do my writing in the afternoons.  Today I fell off that path because of unforeseen circumstances, but that's what I will attempt to do in the future. 

    The reason for this is because I used to have a routine before I started writing on HP.  I find everyone so interesting here though that I can't remove myself from reading everything.  So I need willpower to stop coming here first and getting the other important stuff done that I should be doing first.  Then I can sit here and play. smile

      Thanks for the comment.  I also used to write in the mornings; coffee, birds and the rising sun seemed inspirational.  Like you,  I have checked my usual sites most mornings this week, and have gotten off schedule.

    I write whenever I have time or the fancy strikes me. Lately I've been doing a lot of late night writing because it's peaceful and I seem to have a better flow of imagination later in the day.

      Thanks for your comment.  My morning schedule got thrown off this week, so I wanted to hear from late night writers. I think we all have to find our best time, and you seem to be using your late nights creatively.

    Late night right before going to bed...that is when my ideas start to roil and I want to start writing.

      Happy that works for you, however, if I'm thinking of bed I'm better off reading other's words than trying to develop mine.  Although I have been known to get up if it's a worthwhile idea......

    Hi MDavisatTIERS

    I think in morning perhaps the ideal time to write as fresh mind may be more productive. However, I prefer to write in late night as at that time I wound up all my activities and concentrate all my efforts to produce better recipe.

      Good afternoon, iskhoso; it seems like you can write anytime.  How fortunate.  Thanks for your response. ~Marilyn
