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