Though I have been writing at night, after the routine of dinner, homework, bathtime, storytime and my evening stroll with the dog, I occasionally write early in the morning.  But I prefer to go hiking instead.  Sometimes you catch a deer crossing too.

The conflict remains one of time allocation.  I can write or I can exercise and if I’m really, really disciplined, I do both in one day.

The goal remains to:

  1. write every day, whether for the work blog or for my personal creativity; and
  2. walk or go for a run every day for my personal sanity
