Finding a Writing Schedule

This week I’m experimenting with my writing schedule. I’m trying to find some way to work out my day that will give me at least one uninterrupted hour to write. Not as easy as it sounds.

My thought for Tuesday, 1/3, was to get up an hour early, at 4 am, take the dog out, have a cup of coffee, feed the dog and cats, then be writing by 4:30 am. Not so much. What I failed to take into account was that a four-day struggle with insomnia would continue. Four hours of sleep after a hard day at work does not contribute to much of a word count.

I’m going to try again. We’ll see how it goes.

What’s your writing schedule like? Do you have a certain time to write every day? Do you just take ten minutes here and there throughout the day and jot down words when you can? What time of day are you most productive in your writing?
