Early writing seems like winter activity I SHOULD enjoy. Haven’t done it since my kids were little either. Would be nice to try it when I don’t HAVE to!!! I’m not hoping for Grafton like productivity, but just settling in . . .

Good luck, H-Ann. May the words flow like honey. Gently, sweetly, and at the right pace.

And you are right to keep up the yoga.

I had another colleague sing the praises of early mornings for writing. Of course, then I had to screw my schedule up this year by getting a new puppy. The hours that I spend keeping on top of her needs would put me well along my writing path. I’m just hoping that all of this training pays off and that her energy levels slow down a bit so I don’t feel as if I’m robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Which reminds me: time to finish up the marks on this M.A. essay so I can review the dozen conference paper proposals I’m on the hook for with my June conference before assisting a junior colleague by reviewing new course proposals and then I can think about the article I’m writing which is due November 1. . . .

I’d probably do it over Fall Break, except that we don’t have one. I’ll try it some Friday, then. I’m actually writing backwards now, paring down an overly-wrought manuscript, per an earlier line of posts and comments. So maybe that will be easier than actually writing.

It sounds like you’ve found your way, so stick to your guns!

I’m still searching for mine. I will have to go back to writing at 4am, provided I can do it without waking partner and toddler. (I really need to get to bed earlier…)
