What time of day do you do your best writing?
I can barely text, when I first wake.
Because I've always worked watches and shifts, I could be at my best at odd ours of the day. However - all other things being equal - first thing in the morning is good for me: 7am - 10am.
I tend to work during the day, so the afternoon-early evening are the best times for me. Early mornings rarely happen unless I have had a cup of coffee or tea to wake me up.
any time of the day or night, since i often think of something 'in my sleep' and jot it down with the notepad and pen i keep on the bed... and when up and about, it makes no difference what time of day it is... i'm on the computer from the time i wake up till whatever hour at night that i decide to quit [usually 12-13 hours later, though i've been known to go 18-20 when on a major project], with no discernible difference in the quality of what i churn out...
I often do my best writing late at night, usually between 10 and 1ish, which is pretty annoying when i have to get up early in the morning!!
I write, or at least write down ideas when I'm at work, which is a typical 9-5 job.
Judging from your sig, I guess that's down to caffeine dependency?
Recently I'm doing the majority of mine early before I start my day job, but only because that's one of the few times I can fit it in.
I feel my best early in the day, so my most productive writing days are when I am home and off work but my wife and son are working. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen that often, so I still tend to do a lot of my writing late in the evening when it's quiet. Not ideal, but then I think it was Winston Churchill who said that something like 80% of the world's work is done by people not feeling their best.
Me too. Weekends are MINE and I press them into service for writing
In the early morning, I stagger around, like a zombie (shouldn't that word really be 'zomby' for singular and 'zombies' for plural?) until my first sip of coffee. Then, and only then, can I truly consider myself a candidate for the human race.
