Getting the timing right…

Are you an early bird or a night owl? Do you steal half an hour at lunch time to write a page or two, or do you have time enough to write when and if you want?

Everyone is different, and we all have to juggle our own unique set of priorities that dictates when and where we can write.

I’ve had a quick trawl through the internet to see how some of the more successful authors are thought to approach their writing:

Hmmm. I’m not sure how true all of these stories are. Personally, I am a morning person, but I have spent the last ten years or so working from home, squeezing my work around the kids, and so I am more likely to be able to write at night, when I have space and time to think.

I’m also pretty disciplined because of it: I’ve spent years writing blogs and articles on subjects as riveting as ‘health and safety in the waste and recycling industry’ or ‘bad leaver provisions in employment contracts’. So I am used to forcing myself to sit down and get on with it.

I can’t tell you the joy of sitting down to write my book instead…!

What about you? When and how do you like to write?
