Okay, so for most of last year I was able to write at night - get all the kids into bed and go for it - tired at times for sure, but really it was manageable.
This year that routine hasn't worked so well - I'm not sure what it is. A combination of events I guess - the school/kindy run is busier, we have more extra-curricular activies and the twins have had a rough time with their health. Anyway, I'm finding that thru the week I'm just so tired by their bedtime that I don't have the concentration I need to write. This has led to me putting in some monster weekends.
And so, time for a change - I'm going to attempt the reverse of last year - go to bed really early and get up early. I know other writers do this - Cole gets up at 3 or 4 or something. I'm going to aim for between 4 and 5 - and bed by 8 at the latest - so an 8 or 9 hour sleep - depending on the twins of course! But we can only try right? And I do know that I am freshest first thing - definitely a lark not an owl when it comes to working productively!
So, check in with me tomorrow and I'll fess up about whether I was able to drag my sorry self out of bed ultra early on a cold and frosty morning!
