Last year I talked to many authors about different aspects of writing. I talked to Dan Saffer about how he managed to write his book while working a full-time job. He told me he wrote for an hour every morning before doing anything else (I hope I have this right Dan).
So given I’m a morning person and have had trouble assigning full days (paid & community work jumps in) I thought I’d try this out. (Oh, I should also tell you that I don’t mind coming home and having nice dinner and a glass or two of nice wine which doesn’t make for doing anything useful)
Last week I woke up early four days (and went to bed early on corresponding nights). I worked on easy things last week – documentation for an analysis tool I’ll make public soon.
But this morning I woke up and wrote. I made a cup of tea (organic, fair trade – have to do routine right) and sat down to write. An hour and thousand decent words later I stopped. Cool! This may just work.
