Roundtable Topic #1

Hi everyone! Today is the first of many roundtable discussions I hope to have involving writing. Consider it a virtual meeting of the minds. I thought it would be nice to start out with a simple topic to discuss. So…let’s begin:

How do you make time to write? When do you do your best writing?

    I often wake up with a story or part of a story in my head as a result of nightly dreams, which I an cursed to remember. So, in order not to lose the thought, I get up and type it up. I do my best writing, I think, between 7-9 AM and 6-8 PM. Am more faithful to the early AM writing. I try to write or edit 2-3 times per week.

  2. It still works best for me to commit to one hour a day at the keyboard. More time is wonderful, but a break in the daily commitment is not good. My favorite time to write is first thing in the morning, but that’s not carved in stone.

  3. My best time is first thing in the morning. I tend to wake at 6:00 and have a couple of hours of quiet time before my wife gets up and life in the house begins. Sometimes I head out to SOHO (StoneRidge Plaza) for coffee and a bagel. I choose one of their tall tables next to the drive-up driveway, pull out my paper and absorb myself in either research of writing for a while.

    I get the most writing done after supper when there aren’t as many interruptions as during the day. When I get on a roll (which isn’t often enough) I might continue until 1:00 or 2:00 AM. I pay for it the next day by having trouble getting out of bed at a reasonable hour.
