It’s interesting to think what is the optimum time to write….?
I find that I’m usually busy in the day, but sometimes have a bit of time like now, to write. But the normal time I write is in the evening. Usually when the TV is on and I’m not particularly engaged in the programme. Sometimes I find myself listening to the television with one ear and my husband with the other whilst typing here. My brain can be quite scrambled when I’m doing that.
At the moment I’m listening to a TV programme called countdown when contestants choose a series of vowels and consonants and try and make a word up to 9 letters long. The longest word wins the round. A bit like scrabble really. The other game they play is a mixture of 6 small and large numbers and they must use arithmatic to get to a random number that the computer generates. Each game is only 30 seconds long…….
So getting back to when I write, sometimes I’m racing to publish something before midnight. It’s become a bit of a challenge to myself. I don’t really know why I do it, it may be because I’m quite competitive and I like to try and keep my writing limited to the same day. I guess I treat it as a bit of a deadline.
My other habit is writing late at night or early in the morning when I can’t sleep……as long as its not too boring.
