For some reason I can't seem to write in the middle of the day. It seems like I can sit and concentrate on my writing in the early morning, if I drag myself out of bed before I have to get the kidlets ready for school, or in the evening when hubby wants to cuddle, or talk or whatever. I get a burst of inspiration at night, a burst of writing energy and I feel great, staying up till the wee hours getting something done. But during the day, whether I am home alone or not, I just can't seem to keep my mind focused on my writing. It is really a pain, I want to set time aside during the day for writing, it would be convenient to do it when I am not having to cater to anyone else's needs. But for some reason I just can't seem to do it.
Perhaps I should start sleeping during the day, and stay up even later to get the writing done, LOL, yes my hubby would really like that (sarcasm). I am starting to wonder if I need to force my concentration better during the day, maybe that would work, but probably not. It seems to me that the more I try and force myself to write, the less I get done. It wouldn't seem so odd, i suppose if it wasn't a new sort of thing to happen. I don't think that I have been in this same rut, or maybe I was and just didn't notice it because I had less time during the day to write even if I wanted to. But now I am staying home, and I thought I would have so much opportunity to get stuff done I would be incredibly productive. Not so much.
Well one good thing that has come of this recent development is that my house is much cleaner! I am without else to do and so I clean, not fun, but rewarding.
What about you guys out there? When are you most productive? And do you like it, does it work for you or did you change to work for it?
