Tag Archives: When do you write?

What time of day works best for you to write?

What time of the day is writing more productive for you? I ask for this reason. In an interview online, I wrote that I tend to write in the afternoon. I wait until I finish my errands and chores. A comment by a follower mentioned that she had not heard of a writer writing in the afternoon before. The owner of the site agreed.

That got me thinking. It is practical for me. I never considered writing first thing in the morning if it isn’t NaNoWriMo. It is hard for me to concentrate on writing if I have an errand, the fridge needs cleaning, laundry sorted, my animals cleaned, and more.

So, when do you write? When the mood hits me or when I have free time works for me.

Could I be more productive earlier? Yes, for again NaNoWriMo, if I want to win. I always want to win. I will get up early in the morning to get my word count. If I wait until the afternoon, it might not happen. Happily, I have attempted NaNo and have won all three times.

Apart from that, I tend to put it on hold until time presents itself.

If nothing comes on to write on toward a WIP, I will blog, or do something, anything, that goes toward writing, whether that is marketing, working on my social media platform, and more.

But everyone is different. What works for you is what matters at the end of the day.

Best of luck.
