    So your role in this universe is deleting blog links from random profiles at 8 in the morning?

    My role in this universe is the one I determine and is as multifaceted as the Hindu gods are representative of the Braman. You need to stop posting blog links. Now.

    in my case, any time of the day or night... whenever something occurs to me that needs to be written...

    there is no 'best time' that fits all creative folks... only what works best for each one...

    I tend to be the most inspired and productive late in the afternoon and at night; from 5 or 6 until 11.

    Just after I get up, early in the morning. Subconscious is switched ON, telephone is usually off...

    If I can make myself get down to it, and assuming I know how I want the scene to go, any time is fine.

    But usually? Late at night. From 9 or 10pm I can go til like 3am if I have to. Unfortunately at around midnight my husband goes to bed and wants me to be in bed with him, so what happens is my mind is spinning with ideas and I've only written a page and got another like... entire chapter to pour out - and instead I'm in bed after writing for only like an hour :( I do get quite annoyed about this, but I blame myself. If I'd just stop procrastinating during the day or earlier in the evening, this wouldn't happen.

    I've been most productive early in the morning. I used to get up at 4:30 am, and I'd have a good three to three and a half hours before anybody else showed up. Dawn comes, birds awaken, and it feels like Eden. Great writing time! Then the phone starts ringing, other people start getting demanding, car horns start going off, and paradise turns to purgatory once more. The long tiresome blah of the day must be endured until the next early morning, when I have another chance.

    My schedule over the past few years hasn't allowed me to get up early, other than for short (one or two week) stretches. Argh.

    As my eyes are starting to close and I'm just ready to fall asleep is when some of my brilliant gems strike. Lol. Actually
    any time. Sometimes I'm sitting in a car in the parking lot waiting for a friend to return and I'll get out my note book and knock off some
    scene I've been tackling. What gets me is I've read up on the habits of most authors and they all seem to love early morning. What is up
    with that? Privacy? Something connected with the sun rise or your body being refreshed? I don't think I can get in gear that quickly.
    Night time is actually when I do a lot of my writing.

    I tend to write more creatively in the mid morning. Unfortunately, I have a day job and write at night except on weekends. But, I think if I wasn't as tired, I'd be just as creative at night.

    For me me ideas come whenever, wherever, but to get them down I favour absolute quiet and darkness. I write during the day too but, more often than not, late evening and really early morning sessions tend to be more productive. Even when I have a good flow happening, the dawn chorus, daylight and traffic noise can bring it to an abrupt halt.

    Late at night, when my mind is buzzing from the events of the day and I'm floating in that hazy cloud between reality and my sub-conscious...

    Also, first thing in the morning, I may recall a very vivid and exciting dream. It's always great to get that jotted down before the amnesia of reality kicks in.

    Whenever. I need to be creative on demand for other purposes and I've no issue transferring that to fiction writing. I don't write at a set time of day - just whenever I've the time to churn something out.
