I wake up and wonder what time it is. It was 7:18 am, barely two minutes before the alarm was set to go off. I get to my desk, switch on my reMarkable tablet, and handwrite 1,200 words in about an hour.
Early in the morning, I can write many mini-essays. Thoughts flow. I'm fluid, eager, and energetic. I can keep going for hours.
I write drafts that inspire my publications.
I don't write so much in the evening when I'm often exhausted and need a recharge. Yet the evening is the most creative part of some people's day—we're less rational than in the early morning. So I try to capture ideas before bed if I'm rested and relaxed; there's no pressure to ship or get anywhere, and I can simply enjoy the act of writing.
