When I looked at some of the responses to this prompt, I was surprised to see so many posts from “early birds”. I think the general stereotype of writers and other creatives is that we are all coffee drinking night owls when we pursue our craft or art.
Personally, I am an early bird and most of my best work is done from about 4 to 6 a.m. My guess is that I am most in touch with my unconscious mind just after waking and thus in tune with my creative self. Or maybe it is just a habit I got into when I was furiously working The Artist Way program.
Whatever the reason, it works for me. Today is an exception though: it is 6:30 am. Well, it’s a Saturday after all and I slept in.
