Have you ever felt like the first hour of the morning sets you on a direct trajectory towards the rest of your day?
You’re either “up and at ’em” and ready to conquer the world, or you’re…well…you’re physically present, but your mind is somewhere else.
Whether it’s still asleep or just dreaming of your future vacation days, you just cannot seem to focus.
No matter how you feel when you wake up, do you maintain a normal morning routine?
As a writer, you may not tend to think in a “routine” way. Rather, you are likely to think out-of-the-box or creatively.
You probably like to take a few unexpected turns throughout the day and even fear to fall into a predictable set of behaviors.
However, successful writers know that implementing a morning routine often makes you more productive when it comes time to sit down and write.
So, what’s a good routine and how strict does it have to be? It can certainly be flexible; it’s important to find a routine that’s right for you.
Not every routine is perfect for every person, and not everyone is on the same schedule.
