When do you write?
I've tried to write in the morning, but it never works out well. I get distracted by Twitter, Blogger, Facebook, Radaronline, and any other website that can waste time. Sometimes in the afternoon I can get a few hundred words down, but my writing spurts always tend to hit when night falls.
I have tried disconnecting myself from the internet, forcing myself to sit in front of my laptop and write. It doesn't work. I can spend an entire day trying to get myself to write and not get a single word down. As soon as the sunsets, my mind starts going and my fingers start itching. I need to write. Then instead of being in bed at a reasonable time I'm up till the wee hours typing away.
Not to say that I can never write in the morning or afternoon. It happens from time to time. (Last week it happened a lot actually. Of course after I wrote this post) It just seems that night is when I get into the zone.
Are you a night writer? A morning writer? A midday writer? Or do you just write whenever you can?
